Get one of those USB-C rubber caps for your Leica M11 exposed port


If you already own a Leica M11 camera, you probably know about that ugly exposed USB-C port on the bottom… Open ports are never a good idea for cameras and most companies provide nice plastic flip covers that last forever:


Well, Leica doesn’t, but you can buy a third-party rubber cap at B&H Photo or Amazon that perfectly fit the M11 port:

LeicaRumors email subscription no longer available, looking for alternatives


The LeicaRumors email subscription is no longer available. Google decided to kill the service (called Feedburner) I have been using for 15+ years. While I am looking for an alternative solution, you can follow the latest LeicaRumors blog posts on Facebook, Twitter, and RSS feed:

I assume at some point Google will also kill the Feedburner RSS feed, so it could be a good idea to switch now to the default https://leicarumors.com/feed/.

LeicaRumors can also be found on Instagram, YouTube, and Flickr but I am not very active on those channels:

Leica L1 and L2 watches currently in stock at Leica Store LA



I was told that a very limited number of Leica L1 and L2 watches are currently in stock at Leica Store LA – the only location in the US that sells the new Leica watches (the L1 costs $10,000 and the L2 is $14,000):



The wait time for the Leica watch is usually several months and I am sure the few available pieces will sell out quickly. You can call Leica Store LA at +1 424-777-0341 or email them at
info@leicastorela.com.
