Leica M-E

Leica has announced the M-E, a stripped-down 18MP full-frame rangefinder camera. This entry-level rangefinder includes the M-System’s rapid manual focusing with the viewfinder/rangefinder and the focusing ring of the lens, as well as the option of selecting automatically determined or manually set shutterspeeds.  The camera is designed for those who want to experience rangefinder photography, so the camera features the absolute basics.  The camera’s main specifications are similar to the M9’s, featuring an ISO range of 160–2500, 0.68x magnification viewfinder and a 230k dot 2.5″ screen. The M-E is priced at USD 5450 (approx. Rs. 2,95,700) and will be available later this month.
