We stopped by Leica at Photokina today (that giant photo conference we’ve been talking about)!
Here’s what we saw:
- The Leica M, their newest mirrorless camera with a full-frame 24MP sensor (as good as a DSLR’s!) It goes for K, but it’s a Leica, y’know?
- The stunning and relatively small X2. It’s a compact digital camera with a fast f/2.8 lens and a major CMOS 16.2 MP sensor, which means it can capture light better with low noise and great color depth.

It’s safe to say that the Leica M-Monochrom is changing the way we think about black and white photos.
Where the average digital camera captures no more than 16,000 gray tones, the Monochrom sees 65,000. Check out some examples below by Magnum photographer Jacob Aue Sobol!

Leica opened their first store in the U.S. last week, and The Verge shot photos at the grand opening.
We’d like to visit, but for fear of drooling all over the display cases, we’ll admire from afar.
