Leica M10 camera rumors: the big recap

I have been reporting about the upcoming Leica M10 camera for several months now and you could have missed some of details or leaked pictures (see above). Here is a recap on everything we know so far for the M10:

  • There are no openings for a microphone or a speaker
  • Dedicated ISO wheel/dial on top plate: the dial for the ISO on the top plate has the settings A – M and then goes from 100 to 6,400
  • The camera on switch has only one setting and it’s marked with a dot, there will be no S – C options (for single/continuous shooting)
  • Next to the display on the left are only 3 buttons: LV, Play and Menu as well as 2 LEDs (this is probably done to fit the larger LCD screen), there is also a setting dial as well as direction pad on the back
  • The M10 does not have video recording (no movie button on top), but it does have Live View
  • The flash shoe has the same EVF connector as the TL – previous rumors indicated that the M10 will use the same EVF from the TL
  • LED framelines
  • 0.72x improved (also bigger?) viewfinder (FYI: both the Leica M9 and M 240 have a 0.68x viewfinder)
  • Frame selector
  • Raised M mount to accommodate the rumored thinner body (3.8mm thinner)
  • Update: I was told the M10 will be 38mm thick (or thin) – I assume this includes the raised LCD screen and M mount
  • The model name will be M10, no more “Typ” reference (Leica M10 was recently registered in China)
  • 24MP sensor (the sensor from the Leica SL/Q)
  • Max ISO: 50k (just like the Leica SL and the Leica Q)
  • Slightly bigger LCD screen
  • Same EVF from the TL camera
  • The new M10 should be 3.8mm thinner than the M 240 (should be as thin as analog Leica M camera)
  • Image processing engine MAESTRO II
  • Up to 5 frames per sec
  • Build-in Wi-Fi
  • Improved/simplified menu
  • The Leica M10 will most likely use the same battery (BP-SCL2) as the M Typ 240
  • The official announcement is on January 18th
