Leica M-D Typ 262 has a much faster start-up time compared to other M models?

Based on this video from street.silhouettes, it seems that the new Leica M-D Typ 262 camera has a much faster start-up time compared to previous M 240 and 246 models:

The #decisivemoment. See how the #LeicaMD shoots right away after you turn it on from the off position, (also true from idle) since there’s no need to boot up a computer interface for the LCD. By comparison, the Leica M246 and consequently M240 needs an additional second or two – which as you can see in the video is at least 3 shutter press worth of lost chance to get the decisive moment. Certainly an advantage for those who need to capture the decisive moment on the spot. In life, you don’t get a second chance to get the decisive moment, so what help is it to verify on review? The decisive moment would have passed the second you checked your LCD. #Leica #Leica_md #camera #cameraporn #camera_porn #photographer #photography #gear #gas
