The Leica M is dead… long live the Leica M :)

I’ve been following the rumours of the new Leica M that have been circulating around the web lately.

More interesting perhaps than the camera itself is some of the commentary associated with it.  Specifically, I’m amused by the number of individuals who are dismissing the importance of the pending announcement and referring to the M platform as irrelevant or dead.  I’m willing to bet that many of the naysayers have never touched a rangefinder, let alone used one.

And frankly that sort of talk is in clear violation of Rules #2 and #20, so the haters should proceed with caution.

Without a doubt, the M platform will continue to be relevant as long as photography is.

—Peter.

(On a related note, I sadly have no further news for the “other” M-type camera (CCD anyone? I’ve previously posted about.  Although I’m assured the project is alive and well, no further updates are forthcoming.)

This new release proves that even Leica can sometimes get the aesthetics completely wrong.
