Are Leica Cameras Worth the Cost? Just as some cars are more expensive but retain their value exceptionally well, Leica cameras tend to come in at higher price points but can be worth it in the long run. When purchasing a Leica, you can be confident it will perform beautifully for years to come.

Why is Leica so special?

What kind of camera is the Leica M-E?

The Leica M-E (Typ 240) is an ‘entry-level’ model in Leica’s venerable M-series of rangefinder cameras. It features a 24MP full-frame CMOS sensor (with a top ISO of 6400), Leica’s Maestro processor, and a 2GB buffer for sustained burst capture. Video can be captured at 1080/30p.

How does a Leica M-E ( Typ 240 ) work?

In many ways, the process of using a Leica M-E (Typ 240) closely parallels the operation of a film-based Leica. To change the battery or SD card, remove the entire bottom plate. Focus is manual via a bright convergent-image style rangefinder, and the field of view is marked by bright lines superimposed inside the viewfinder.

Can you get into the Leica M system?

Is the Leica M9 still a good camera?

You can pick up used M9’s for less than you imagine now, and it is still a full frame digital camera that is very capable, despite having a rubbish screen. The M-E is basically the same camera, for a little bit less money. But they are so new you are not really going to see any used ones on the market yet.
