All Leica M Firmware Updated

Leica has released firmware updates for basically all M cameras, including the Leica M8 (v2.024), M9/M9-P/M-E (v1.202), M Monochrom (v1.008) and M/M-P (v2.0.1.7)! The updates only add support for the Leica Summarit-M 35mm f/2.4 ASPH, Summarit-M 50mm f/2.4, Summarit-M 75mm f/2.4 and Summarit-M 90mm f/2.4 lenses however, so if you don't own one of these lenses it does not appear to be a "must-have" firmware update.

Leica T Firmware Update v1.2

Leica has released a new firmware update, v1.2 (from v1.1), for the Leica T! Specific download links below or just hit the download area - it primarily includes many new features that further simplify the overall operation of the Leica T camera system and thereby provide even more creative possibilities. Hopefully it addresses some of the issues we discovered in our recent Hands-on with the Leica T (Type 701). Originally, Leica was seeking beta testers for this release, but decided instead to push it out for Photokina 2014. Read more below for details!

Major Leica S Camera Firmware Announced

Today, Leica has announced the most extensive firmware update since the release of the S-System, promising numerous tweaks and improving the performance of the camera and all Leica S lenses considerably. It includes an all-new autofocus algorithm that improves AF performance, providing significantly faster focusing and enabling greater precision. The update also includes all S lenses with an optimized AF motor control (including the new Summicron-S 100mm f/2 ASPH also announced today). Added to this is improved object tracking with prediction in Continuous AF mode (Predictive AF). The GPS accuracy is also optimized. The S (Type 006) will get v2.4.0.0 and the S2/S2-P gets v1.4.0.0).

Leica Releases Firmware v2.0.1.5 for M

Leica has (almost) released a firmware update for the M (Type 240) of v2.0.1.5 (full links below).

We have word that June 30th would be the official date, and they're now live!. Stay tuned as we'll keep you updated when they (really) become available! Read more below for details and updates!
