Leica M10-D Rumour and Aaron C. Greenman’s Post from 4.5 years ago.

According to Leica Rumors, the Leica M10-D will be arriving shortly.

Looking back to a Guest Post by Aaron C. Greenman almost 5 years ago, it seems that many of the items on his wish list have been incorporated into the new model.

I can’t wait to see if his request for a lever that manually re-cocks the shutter has been included, as the “leaked” images seem to suggest.

No CCD sensor though, so in that sense we are probably both disappointed 🙂

  1. This is the kind of vision that we should all try to have for ourselves. It’s not stupid, pie-in-the-sky nonsense such as Solar Roadways or the Hyperloop. But at the same time it isn’t limited to mediocre expectations that too many people have for what cameras can be (a few recent releases come to mind, but I’m not naming names…).

    The problem with Leica is that I don’t think they really want to redesign the internals of the M10 just to house a different sensor. Look how long it takes them to release a monochrom version (and note that we still don’t have a monochrom S or SL). However, it is exactly the sort of thing that Leica should do. Nobody else would, and that’s exactly the point.

  2. Leonardo says:

    I know there is a market for this camera. Still, I can’t understand why people would buy this. Just get a film camera.

  3. Aaron (ACG), I’m curious now that the M10-D has been released what you think of it. The “film advance” lever is not what you had hoped for obviously.

  4. So close and yet so far. In short Peter, I am a bit shocked that the “film advance lever” is just a thumb rest. While it all looks great, I think it’s a pretty egregious breach of form follows function, and a bit surprising for Leica. On the other hand, they designed the SL, which is at least to my hands one of the most uncomfortable cameras to hold ever (while the S is one of the most comfortable). Go figure
