The Expanded Guide : Leica M10

If there is one name that is synonymous with the “ultimate” photographic experience, it is Leica. Just as car aficionados might lust after a Rolls-Royce, so photographers covet the Leica marque: even those people who will never own or use one are aware of their reputation as one of the finest photographic tools in the world.

By the far the most popular range in the Leica line-up is the company’s iconic M-series, which has a history stretching back over six decades to the Leica M3 of 1954. Since then, the high-end 35mm M-series rangefinders have been joined by digital equivalents that share the same fundamental standards of superlative build quality and outstanding image quality, all of which have found themselves revered by both longstanding Leica users and those falling for the brand’s allure for the first time.
