Leica Launches the M10

Hello it's been a while....

That is true of the frequency of posts going up on this blog lately, as it is of new M-system news from Leica. Today, after numerous rounds of leaks Leica launched the successor to the Leica M Type 240, the M10. With the simpler name comes a an exquisitely paired down body and control structure. This one is pretty much one for base; in many ways it's what Apple would call the "s" version of the M240; the same, but better. It will most certainly please the faithful, and it touches upon many of the wants that have collected over the past generation. Just like how the SL is minimalist in a modern design sense, the M10 is a minimalist callback to tradition.
