Product Overview

Leica M10 is a high-end rangefinder camera in the Leica M-mount system. Introduced by Leica in 2017, it comes with a full-frame sensor with 24 MP (5952 x 3992) resolution.
The camera has a poor battery life, and a second or third battery may be needed to get you through the day. The Leica M10's 5.0 fps burst rate limits its use for certain types of photography, but it is hardly something that most photographers should worry about.

Reviewers from phillipreeve have found the following***:
If you have a collection of old rangefinder lenses you might be tempted to think that a modern Leica is your only way to go. But I would still recommend to also consider a kolari modded A7 series or Z-series camera instead. You will be getting a more modern camera with better usability and image quality for significantly less money.

Pros
  • Very compact and light
