Leica M-E (TYP 220) Rangefinder Camera Body in Anthracite Grey
The Leica M-E is smallest in the digital M-Camera range and features an 18 megapixel high-resolution CCD sensor in full 35mm format.
Classic M design
The essence of the M-System is reflected in the functional design which lends clarity and an absolute timeless to the camera’s character. The top and base plates are discreetly finished in anthracite-grey paint and the leather trim offers superior grip. The quiet sound signature of its shutter release shows our attention to the finest of details.
Uncompromising image quality
The 18-megapixel high-resolution CCD sensor in full 35 mm format is a perfect fit in the M-System. The micro lens layout makes it tolerant of oblique light rays impinging on the surface and guarantees uniform exposure and extreme sharpness. The omission of the low-pass filter reduces the need for digital post-processing and offers a particularly natural visual impact.
Concentrated on the essentials
The Leica M-E is a modern camera that works like a classic, so mastering the essentials of this piece comes quickly and naturally. You may focus manually – using the rangefinder and focusing ring of the lens – or select automatically determined or manually set shutter speeds.
Quiet, discreet, compact
The M-System proudly claims discretion and unobtrusiveness as particular strengths, perfectly showcased by Leica M-E’s inconspicuous shutter action. Additionally, the combination of camera and lens offers a more compact system than any other full-format camera, allowing M-Photographers to almost blend into the scenery to capture life’s most precious, fleeting moments.
