Leica Announces the M-D (Type 262) Camera

A camera we've been telling you about for a little while now - has been officially announced. The Leica M-D (Type 262) a.k.a. "poor man's M60." Essentially a mix between the Leica M (Type 240) and M (Type 262) - using the same 24MP sensor as both but without the live view and video as with the latter. What truly sets it apart is the lack of the LCD screen on the backside... Replacing it with an ISO dial (similar to the spendy Leica M "Edition 60"). The retail price is £4,650/€5,995/$5,995.
