New Leica M-E Typ 240 camera announced?

New Leica M-E Typ 240 camera announced?

There is a new Leica M-E Typ 240 camera listed on Leica's website (available at the end of July, 2019). I am not sure if this is a mistake or just an early announcement, but here are the details:

The Leica M-E (Typ 240) is distinguished by a timelessly elegant aesthetic and high-end construction; each model is handcrafted in Germany. The compact camera body is dust and spray water resistant, while the genuine leather trim offers both a sophisticated appearance and a safer grip on the camera. Top and base plate are finished in an anthracite grey paint which has been developed especially for the M-E.

Leica Q2 camera sensor test review posted at DxOMark

Leica Q2 camera sensor test review posted at DxOMark



DxOMark just published their analysis of the Leica Q2 camera sensor. Here is their conclusion:

Although at one point compact cameras routinely accepted 35mm film, full-frame compact digital cameras are very rare. The Leica Q2 has a high-resolution sensor that puts it on par with Panasonic’s flagship Lumix DC-S1R, and although it doesn’t quite match that camera’s stellar performance, it’s clear that the Q2 is capable of producing superb-quality images—so much so that it ranks in the top 10 of all the cameras we have tested, with its strongest suit being its ability to render color well. This, combined with its extreme portability, makes the Q2 a very attractive option for landscape, street, and travel photographers.
