The Leica M7 camera is now officially discontinued. The M7 is currently in stock at B&H and Amazon, but once sold out, it will no longer be produced by Leica Camera. The Leica MP and Leica M-A remain the only film cameras in the current Leica’s lineup. The Leica M7 was introduced 15 years ago:

“Today marks the passing of a legend, the venerable Leica M7. First introduced in 2002 as the follow-up to the M6, the Leica M7 brought a more modern aperture priority mode and electronically-controlled shutter to a classic mechanical M design. The M7 was also the first M camera with a built-in DX code reader for ISO detection. The camera has been well-loved for over 15 years, but all good things must come to an end.

Effective immediately, Leica will no longer produce any more new M7 cameras, in black or silver. There still might be a handful in stock at various dealers, but once sold out, no more will be coming from Wetzlar. The same goes for the a la Carte program. No M7-based configurations will be accepted or built for customers wanting a custom camera.”
