Leica M11 First Impressions: It Could Actually Be Your Primary Camera

Quite possibly the first time a Leica rangefinder could really be your primary camera.

Leica M11 Review: The Ultimate Digital M | Red Dot Forum

Leica had a real challenge this time around. In just a little over a decade, the legendary German camera maker had progressed from its first rudimentary attempt at a digital rangefinder camera in the M8 to what I dubbed the quintessential digital M with the M10. And since its introduction in 2017, the M10 has gotten some significant updates – the M10-P with an ultra-quiet shutter, touchscreen and level gauge, then later the M10-R, which upped the sensor resolution from 24 megapixels all the way to 40. How could a digital M be improved much further?
