Leica M10-P with touchscreen and a new macro filter rumored to be announced later this year

Two new Leica rumors:

  • A new Leica M10-P camera with a touchscreen is rumored to be announced later this year.
  • New Leica TL macro lens “ELPRO 52” is also coming soon (update: this could be for a new macro filter and not a new lens).

Additional information on “ELPRO” (thanks Mike):

The term “Elpro” means “Ernst Leitz Proxar”, and was introduced with the original Leicaflex. An Elpro is a close-up lens, not a filter, which fits the filter thread of the lens for which it is designed.

The Elpro was the first two-element achromatic close-up lens, computed for maximum quality with the Leica R lenses. Minolta, Panasonic, and Nikon copied the concept, and Nikon still makes a few to assist specific Micro-Nikkor lenses.

Leitz originally used the name “Macrotar”, but this name proved to be already trademarked by a now defunct New York City retail dealer. An original Leitz Macrotar is a very rare Leica accessory.
