P VERY QUIET
Leica touts its new M10-P camera as being “a new level of understatement”, which appropriately enough, is a bit of an understatement in itself.
All Leica M series cameras, the latest being the M10 which was launched last year, always had discretion, but the new M10-P takes that one step further.
In typical Leica fashion of releasing even-more-discreet variants of their existing products, the M10-P is an iteration of the M10, stripped of the brand’s signature red dot logo on the front, with the only branding found on the top plate.
It’s largely unchanged elsewhere, though the M10-P does come with what the camera maker says is the quietest shutter ever to make it onto an M camera. Quieter even than the shutter releases of Leica’s film cameras, long prized by enthusiasts for their hallmark silent operation.
Also unique to the M10-P is a touch functionality for its screen — a first for a Leica M camera.
The Leica M10-P is priced at S$12,000, over the S$10,960 the regular M10 is priced at.
