The 24-megapixel 2012 Leica M (Typ 240) is hereby designated the Leica M240, to address the confusing idea of dropping the model designation from the M line.
Backfilling the functionality gaps
In general, Leica is taking the M line forward in a very useful way.
The various accessories (handgrip with GPS, Leica R lens adapter, EVF2, Live View, video) all contribute to a FAR more versatile and useful system that rewards those who have invested in Leica. KUDOS to Leica for moving the M line forward.
As for the Leica M-E, I suppose this is a good thing, but the same moldering 230K pixel LCD is used and no Live View, so I don’t see the point over buying a mint used M9 or M9P, which will flood the market when the M240 appears.
