Leica M240 with optional EVF

Leica M240 — Intro

The new 24-megapixel Leica M240 is a game-changer, a breakthrough.

It’s not going to change the overall digital marketplace much (tiny, tiny volume), but the M240 makes the M platform accessible to a far wider customer base, and now applies to many more usage scenarios, as it addresses the key faults of the M9/M9P. Better yet, at about $6950, Leica has actually brought the price down over the M9/M9P.

The mid-range M-Ewhich has no Live View and is essentially an M9 is a dubious product given the modest $1500 price difference, which is less than the cost of one good Leica M lens (perhaps certain lifelong rangefinder users with perfect vision, or those who for some reason want the 18MP CCD sensor might find a few specific reasons, but they are rare cases)

  • Make better images by learning how to get the best results right away.
  • Save money by choosing the right lens for your needs the first time, particularly the Summilux/Summicron/Elmarit choice and/or Zeiss ZM.
  • Make better images, a sort of “cheat sheet” saving yourself months or years of ad-hoc learning. Processing parameters are discussed and shown.
  • Jaw-dropping image quality found nowhere else utilizing Retina-grade images up to full camera resolution, plus large crops [past 2 years or so].
  • Real world examples with insights found nowhere else. Make sharper images just by understanding lens behavior you won’t read about elsewhere.
  • Aperture series from wide open through stopped down, showing the full range of lens performance and bokeh.
  • Optical quality analysis of field curvature, focus shift, sharpness, flare, distortion, and performance in the field.
