The Leica M Monochrom camera is now $2,451 off

The Leica M Monochrom camera is now $2,451 off (was $2,000 off back in September last year). Those are probably the last few pieces available for sale before this model is officially discontinued. The new Monochrom Typ 246 is currently listed for $7,450.

    Seems like this camera should be priced around $4,500, like the M-E was. Its essentially the same camera with one different part -an altered CCD chip. I wonder how many people realize that if you take your SD card out of your M9 and place it into a Monochrom camera, the Monochrom camera will show the M9 images IN COLOR on its LCD screen. It’s the exact screen from the M9/M-E.

    Leica also should make a M262 version of the Monochrom. I think that would be a real hit with Leica fans who don’t like video or live view.

      Of course it does, it is the sensor that is monochrome, or more to the point, lacks a Bayer filter.

      From memory the MM was a M9P with different sensor, not a M-E.

      Due to economies of scale, it’s more expensive to manufacture a monochrome sensor. Much like how a laptop is more expensive if you get a different CPU, despite everything else being the same.

      If you take that Sd card and put into an Asus netbook it will display too.

    The CCD sensor in this body is also vulnerable to corrosion like that in the M9/M9P/M-E?
