Leica M11 camera first impressions




My name is Andrew (@andrew.pictures), and I am very excited to share some images with you from the new Leica M11. When the phone rang just after 9am from my friend Sawyer at Leica Store Boston I grabbed the call on the first ring. The M11 had just been announced, and he was calling to say they had a camera for me! Even better – I was already in the car, on my way to Bar Harbor, Maine USA to meet up with friends for a landscape photo workshop in Acadia National Park. I had the camera shipped to me on location, and was opening the box 24 hours later. These are my first impressions, along with my favorite images from the trip.

Here is another, even better Leica Q3 Easter egg: the above picture is part of the latest Leica FOTOS app – the camera displayed looks like a Leica Q but with a different position of the side buttons and with a tiltable screen (first for Leica?). For comparison, here are the back views of the Leica Q and Leica Q2 cameras:
