    Leica is not going to be happy about the Likea MPH

    So you can't afford to pop for a real Leica MP camera. Not a problem! Some enterprising bloke has a cheapskate alternative for you, the Likea MPH. Sure, it's not the real thing, but it looks close and it's $4,575 cheaper then an actual Leica. Read More

  • Hands-on with the new Leica line: Sexytime

    Hands-on with the new Leica line: Sexytime

    Say what you want about Leica but they make some beautiful glass and some great cameras. Today I saw the 18-megapixel M9 (New Yorkers take note: Leica will have loaner units at the New York Photo Festival), the 12-megapixel X1, and the brand new V-LUX 20. I didn’t get a chance to shoot much but from what I saw the manual controls on the X1 are excellent and its designed primarily as a street… Read More

  • The Leica V-Lux 20 gets its own unboxing video

    Even though I know the just-announced Leica V-Lux 20 is nothing more than a rebadged Panasonic DMC-ZS7, I still want it. Bad. I think it's just because it's from Lecia and my heart is speaking louder than my brain. Anyway, the camera is now rolling out to select retailers this is where we get this unboxing video from. Man I want this camera. Read More

  • Great, an underwater case for a Leica M8 – who's got $8000 to spare?

    Great, an underwater case for a Leica M8 – who's got $8000 to spare?

    If you've got the nerves to take your precious Leica M8 underwater... well, I salute you. I don't think I could take such a sweet piece of kit below the waves unless they made one waterproof to begin with. But I suppose if they're going to charge this much for an underwater housing, one can be fairly certain that they stand behind their product. Read More

  • The Leica V-Lux 20 gets official

    There isn't much to say here. We already knew that the Leica V-Lux 20 was going to be a DMC-ZS7 clone with the same 12.1 MP 25-300mm lens arrangement, GPS, and 3-inch LCD. And we were really close on the price, too, stating that it would retail for €549 where in fact it's coming with a €499 MSRP. So yeah, there isn't much to say here but you may wanna click through to view a gallery of the… Read More

  • Leica M7 Hermès edition, unboxed and lovely

    Leica M7 Hermès edition, unboxed and lovely

    Ahhh, Leica special editions. How you love to come out, and cost lots of money. The Hermès edition is no exception, though, as expected, the design is still 99.9% the same as the other Leicas. But this one has a delicious special-process orange leather grip, plus a special 35mm f/1.4 Summilux lens made using a new process that makes it as light as the black alloy lenses, but chromed like the… Read More

    Leica M9 up for pre-orders (can I borrow $7k?)

    The $6,995 Leica M9 is available for pre-order at B&H. You’re probably excited. I would be too if I had the cash to buy the 18MP digital rangefinder. Just look at it; you know you want it. Forget that down payment on a house. You should buy this camera instead. It will probably hold its value better. [B&H via Leica Rumors] Read More
