Exclusive La Vida Leica news! Earlier we mentioned a New Leica product on May 1, 2015. At first we thought it was likely to be the new Leica Q (Type 116) according to all current info we had received, but like anything in the rumor business - things change, often quickly. We got some last-minute intel and confirmation from multiple sources - and now know what that is... Turns out that it will be the new Leica M Monochrom (Type 246) after all! Except it won't be announced at the Paris Photo Los Angeles event. It will be announced independently and concurrently... At the Leica Store Los Angeles. More details as they develop, of course... But in the mean time, check out this print ad, which you will be seeing in the upcoming issue of M Magazine... Read more below for the full ad and details!
