Since the introduction of the rangefinder system in 1954, Leica M film cameras have been considered by many photographers to be the perfect tool for capturing the fascination of a moment discreetly, quietly and without hesitation. And of course in uncompromising quality. Today, it is the digital Leica M-E camera body that embodies the philosophy of the M-System in its purest form. It concentrates exclusively on essential photographic functions, yet remains simple and intuitive to use. At the same time, it is a part of the most compact full-format camera system available and enjoys access to lenses acknowledged as the best in the world. A camera created to let the world discover the fascination of M-Photography. Please note that this includes the camera body only, lenses are sold separately.

Quiet, discreet, compact and concentrated on the essentials
Discretion and unobtrusiveness are particular strengths of the M-System. For instance, the Leica M-E’s shutter action is extremely quiet. At the same time, the combination of camera and lens is more compact than any other full-format camera system – a reason why M-Photographers often go unnoticed and simply blend into the scenery.
Concentration on the essentials is part of the M-System philosophy. This also applies to the Leica M-E: it consciously declines to offer everything that is technically possible, but rather limits itself to what is essential to photography. These essentials include the M-typical rapid manual focusing with the viewfinder/rangefinder and the focusing ring of the lens, but also the option of selecting automatically determined or manually set shutter speeds.
Uncompromising image quality
The Leica M-E features an 18-megapixel high-resolution CCD sensor in full 35 mm format. The sensor is perfectly attuned to its role in the very compact M-System and the superior performance of M-Lenses. The special layout of the micro lens makes it tolerant of oblique light rays impinging on its surface, and guarantees uniform exposure and extreme sharpness from corner to corner in every image. The omission of the otherwise usual low-pass filter reduces the need for digital post-processing and ensures that images possess a particularly natural visual impact.
Distinctively functional lines lend the camera an absolutely timeless character. After all, the essence of the M-System is also expressed by its design. The top and base plates are discreetly and unobtrusively finished in anthracite-grey paint. The design of its body expresses clarity, and its leather trim offers superior grip. The mechanical yet almost inaudible sound signature of its shutter release remains as a reminder that this M too is a masterpiece of unparalleled craftsmanship.
