B&H has the new Leica M-P in stock and shipping. The Leica M-P features a 24MP full frame sensor. It also deletes the signature Leica red dot on the front of the camera in order to provide a more low-profile appearance for those shooting in public places. The Leica M-P is also weather-sealed and sports a new sapphire crystal screen protector to prevent scratches and cracks on the rear display. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
The recently-introduced Leica T features a 16.5MP APS-C sensor and interchangeable lens mount, along with what looks to be a very polished touchscreen interface.
It is that touchscreen interface that the software developers at AppCam take issue. According to a snark-heavy press release from AppCam, the Leica T’s operating system is a complete rip off of AppCam’s product. [Read more…]
