    Leica M10

    $50 that the new M10 will have the same sh*ttastic 230k dot LCD on the back.

    Discuss.






    P.S. Call me silly, but had the M9M come with an upgraded UI, I would have ordered two. Because it's the same 6 year old tech, I am passing.

    Nah... it's not 6 year old tech. Some of it is even 99 years old. You can always hope for an anniversary version next year, made from strontium found on the dark side of Mars and with a higher resolution, 3D display that reads your mind and takes your photos for you.

    But somehow, I doubt it.

    Some people wanted them to remove the LCD entirely. Would that have been more to your liking?

    I could easily see them producing a slimmer, lighter M9.5-M like that. Remove the LCD, put all the little control widgets into a small top-mounted LCD, dispense with the JPEGs, with A mode, and with EV compensation entirely.

    That would make the closest thing to my M4-2 you can get in a digital camera. I think I'd buy one then. ;-)

    Re: Leica M10

    People have been shooting with film Ms for decades without an LCD.

    What exactly does one need a high resolution LCD for in a Leica digital M?

    At high mp and using wide open f/1.4, f/0.95 maybe but on this one..I doubt it.

    I might very well be wrong in this though.

    but on my old M8 I use the LCD just to set up
    some parameters and check the histogram. That is the only use I have for an
    LCD on a digital M. I do not need big res for that.

    YMMV of course.

    Without LCD, how do you set ISO, Set date and time, minimum shutter speed for A mode or so on? Its a digital camera so it need LCD, otherwise, just buy M6/7
    Its there and you feel you dont need it but without it, you'll miss it.
    I just wish my m9 has a better LCD
