Leica M (Typ 262) Entry Set 2 - with 35mm F2.4 S
Since the launch of the rangefinder system in 1954, Leica M cameras have been valued by many photographers as the perfect tool for capturing the fascination of a moment discreetly, quietly and spontaneously. We began writing a new digital chapter in the success story of the M-Camera - then analogue in 2006. Today, it is the Leica M (Type 262) that embodies the M-Philosophy in its purest form: with a focus on the
functions essential for photography combined with clear and intuitive handling, it is one of the most compact, full-frame system cameras available, and offers you access to lenses acknowledged as being the best in the world. It is the essence of M-Photography. The perfect camera for experiencing the fascination of the M in its purest form.
Ergonomics and Design
A distinctively clear and functional design reflects the timeless character of the Leica M (Typ 262). Once again focusing on ‘Das Wesentliche’ - the essentials. Through the art minimalisation. Through perfect craftsmanship. The Leica M (Typ 262) is a symbol of a product that has been ’minimalised’ to perfection.
The Leica M-System fulfils real photographic needs. This applies in particular to the Leica M (Typ 262) – a digital rangefinder camera that consciously offers less than is technically possible. No other camera stands so firmly for a focus on ‘Das Wesentliche’ – a focus on what is truly essential for serious photographers.
Just like all other digital M-Cameras, the Leica M (Typ 262) captures images with a high-resolution CMOS full-frame sensor. Its 24-megapixel resolution ensures exceptional image quality and extreme sensitivity – with ISO values of up to 6400. This makes the Leica M (Typ 262) the ideal camera, for shooting in available light situations.
In addition to its unobtrusive looks, the barely audible shutter of the Leica M (Typ 262) also guarantees maximum discretion. An invaluable advantage when candid photography is the aim of the game. The Leica M (Typ 262) features a shutter cocking system ideal for this purpose that is quieter in single exposure mode than that of the M (Typ 240).
