Leica M11 Announced

Leica M11

The Leica M11 is a digital rangefinder camera built around a 60MP BSI CMOS sensor. It’s the latest in Leica’s ‘M’ series of rangefinders that dates back to the M3 from 1954. With this unrivaled depth of heritage behind it, it’s no surprise that the M11 looks a lot like its predecessors. You can read what it’s like to shoot a Leica M camera with our review of the Leica M10.

Despite the visual similarities, there’s a lot that’s changed in the latest model, with a more refined body design as well as completely new internals.
