A reliable, robust, high-resolution M10 rangefinder – meet the new Leica M10-R. Its 40-megapixel color sensor offers significantly reduced image noise and the widest dynamic range found in our M series. The sensitivity range from ISO 100 to 50000 ensures perfect performance in any situation. Maximum exposure time is now 16 minutes. Still, the mechanical shutter is whisper-quiet – the Leica M10-R’s precision and quality are everlasting.

The Leica M10-R opens up new dimensions of image quality with its high resolution of over 40 megapixels. The image sensor captures even the smallest details, so photographers can dive deeper into every scene. The M10-R is defying conventional wisdom, where increased resolution means sacrificing low-light performance. The M10-R boasts a much higher megapixel count over its 24MP M10 brethren while also delivering lower levels of noise. The Leica M10-R can be used in any and all environments for a wide range of photographic disciplines.

With a resolution of over 40 megapixels, the Leica M10-R’s newly developed image sensor is able to capture even the finest textures and details.

Its base sensitivity of ISO 100, combined with fast Leica M-Lenses, makes it easy and flexible for shooting wide open. In addition, achieving maximum background blur and strong bokeh is possible even in bright daytime light.

On the other end of the spectrum, the new sensor allows for a longer maximum exposure time of 16 minutes. Longer exposures allow the user more creative freedom. From capturing star trails, motion blur or bringing out the tiniest amount of light in a nighttime landscape. All of this versatility at new heights of resolution and higher dynamic range make the M10-R an imaging powerhouse.

Special components for an exceptional performance

The Leica M10-R is more than just a big megapixel count. Its vital components work to ensure a complete package of imaging prowess.

The M10-R has a super quiet mechanical shutter. First established with the Leica M10-P, it allows for stealthy operation and minimal vibrations. This works to minimize camera shake and help ensure sharper photos.

The Leica M10-R is constructed by highly trained specialists. They assemble the elaborately engineered components into a product that is much more than the sum of its parts.

The rangefinder alone is comprised of over 100 individual parts. And, the majority of which move together in harmony with every turn of the lens.

The exclusive use of high-end materials, along with the time-honored ‘Made in Germany’ production quality resonate within the M10-R. These trademark Leica qualities culminate in a resilient and reliable photographic companion to last a lifetime.

The perfect combination: taking excellence to new heights

The Leica M10-R’s high resolution sensor is optimized. Especially when paired with some of the best lenses in the world – Leica M-Lenses. Each lens in the M family from Leica is an engineering marvel of sharpness, compactness and image signature. This marvel comes alive when mounted to a Leica M camera.

From the super compact Elmarit-M 28 f/2.8 ASPH. to the razor-thin depth of field of the Summilux-M 90 f/1.5 ASPH. Even with the flagship performance of the APO-Summicron-M 50 f/2 ASPH, the M10-R fully realizes the capabilities of the prime M-Lens it is paired with.
