The rumors are building up surrounding a new camera, currently known as the Leica M-D (Type 262). It will be based on the existing Leica M (Type 262) including size and shape - sans the LCD screen on the back. Same sensor, brass top/bottom plates. The price is suggested to be higher, however - roughly $6,700 vs. $5,195 USD. It should be arriving at the beginning of May. We'll keep you posted! Read more below for additional details and updates!

Most M, S and TL lenses are going up with a range of increases from $79-$975 depending on the item. Better hurry! Read more below!

In a move that can be seen as good - or bad - depending on how you look at it... Starting today, March 24, 2016 - Google announced that they have made the entire Nik Collection FREE. If you purchased it in 2016, you'll receive a full refund, to be issued shortly. Now let's hope that this isn't the beginning of the end for this excellent suite of tools...
