Leica is promising a "special highlight" on April 24, 2014 in Berlin at 7pm... Telling us to keep the evening free and be excited. It's definitely going to include the new mirrorless camera we mentioned earlier. That being the case, one or more lenses to go with it shouldn't be unexpected. Read more below, which will be updated as we get more info! Updated!

The last firmware update for the Leica M (Type 240) was v220.127.116.11 released in December, 2013 and that was mostly an "internal" update, with no visible end-user changes. There's been talk for some time now that changes to the behavior of Auto-ISO were set to drop but we have yet to see that materialize. There are now some fresh rumblings of a firmware update coming, promising more "feature requests." The timing could be interesting with a Leica special event looming on April 24th... Perhaps May 24th (how apropos). What else might we expect? Read more below for updated details!

It's no secret, but not exactly well-known (or publicized in any way) for that matter - but you can opt to have your new Leica customized (for a fee, of course). Leica Store Miami recently posted the above picture as an example. It's a Leica M (Type 240) with the M9-P-esque "Leica" script engraving. Of course, you can also apply this to the M-E or M Monochrom as well. You can even choose the color (e.g. white or red). Not quite à la carte, but some options exist. Contact your local dealer (or Leica Store Miami) and ask about it. Of course, you can pimp your Leica in many other ways as well!
