Where do we even begin with this one? Leica introduces the M Edition 60 in celebration of the brand’s 60th anniversary of mechanical and imaging excellence. Although beautiful and pricey (as expected) this is not your typical Leica. The beautiful rangefinder features everything you’d expect in a state-of-the-art camera from the famed German maker — an aluminum/leather body, 24-megapixel sensor, and a special edition kit lens. Perfect.
Oh, but there’s no screen. That’s right. All that processing power with no way to review your images. In a day of total immediacy, the concept seems completely insane — at least at first. Remember shooting film? There was definitely some magic behind waiting to see your images and Leica has done its best to recreate this phenomenon. While we’re completely behind the idea, we’re are having trouble swallowing the total $18,500 price tag. The camera will be available at the end of October through Leica and online retailers like B&H.
