Product Overview

Leica M10 Monochrom is a high-end rangefinder camera in Leica's M system. Introduced by Leica in 2020, it comes with a full-frame 41 MP (7864 x 5200) sensor without Bayer filter, which results in roughly 1 extra stop of sensitivity.
The M10 Monochrom comes with all the tactile details that enthusiasts are enamored with. Leica has even dropped the little red dot, giving the camera a complete blacked-out look.

pcmag[1]

Sentiment Score 91%
Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
The M10 Monochrom's sensor offers ISO 160 capture, so you're less likely to add a neutral density filter to your lens if you want to shoot it at f/1.4 in bright sunlight. When working in Raw DNG format, detail is excellent and images show very little grain through ISO 1600. The shutter is the same extra-quiet version used in the M10-P.

  • Full-frame autofocus, 4K recording, and continuous drive shooting
  • Very quiet
  • Built-in optical viewfinder
Cons
  • No Bayer filter
  • No manual focus

Sentiment Score 86%
Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
The Leica M10 Monochrom is a black-and-white version of the Leica M-P10. It shoots at up to 4.5fps with a 10-frame buffer. ISO handling is so good that you can shoot at ISO 100,000 and still get great results. Focus peaking is highly effective and can be relied upon when shooting using the screen.

Pros
  • Incredible image quality
  • Superb autofocus
  • Incredible build quality
Cons
  • Only shoots in black-and-white
  • No low pass filter
