    in the analog years you bought Leica for same amount of money, only then they lastest a lifetime. Now due to electronics 10 year tops. Not quite eligable for investment anymore

    Buy a Lecia body with no rear screen for over $8,000. and you get a free "I'm a Leica Dummy" sign that attaches to your back.

    I want his camera with a film advance leaver, that generates the electricity for exactly 1 shot and compleatly without battery, just condensor powered. Then i would think about paying the money

    This is the only Leica I actually want. Still ridiculously over priced. The only thing I wish this had was a film advance lever (4:25) that you actually have to recock to take a photo.

    There is one single damn good thing about this no screen version: when you are doing a job to shoot someone and she always comes to you to check the photos which is very annoying for photographers, now it is literally impossible with this camera. hahaha

    I’m ending asking you questions without ever getting any reply, make my day and answer me this!!! How do you find the M10D next to some of the past cameras that you have reviewed over your many years of camera reviewing: fujifilm X, Leica M, Context, GF, Voigtänder and Hasselbeld!!!
    Which system is you favorite and what would you use it for within your day to day job as a photographer???

      The Leica brand is just cringe now, its more of a status symbol than camera, any real photographer would use a Nikon/Canon/Sony/Fuji instead of this $8,000 brick.

    Interesting that in a city famously only 43% white British, on that anti brexit rally, black and brown faces are like rocking horse poo.
    The 700,000 white middle class rally would have been more accurate.

    I think I could enjoy a city break and take some shots and be very very happy knowing I bagged quality images! My break would be awesome! Only when I get home would I realise my compositions and metering were a disappointment! :). When you think about it...you actually enjoy the shooting process without worrying about the results!

  • FastEddie

    No LCD screen display, and a "film" wind lever! What will Leica do next? Perhaps they can have an SD card that you have to send out to have it developed? The truth is that Leica has figured out how to charge their customers for features they remove from their cameras and increase the asking price. If you think about it either the folks at Leica are geniuses or we their customers are total idiots! This nostalgia bullshit can only get them so far before people figure out the game they are playing.

    Only Leica can market such a lack of features as an advantage. It's just photo jewellery. If Canon sold the same camera for $500 it would be ripped by all the reviewers. "$500 No LCD? Are Canon Crazy?....Oh//it's a Leica...and $8000...therefore it's a beautiful throwback to 1944...wonderful"

    Great camera Kai, not so sure about the morality of filming mental cases, it seems to me to be on a similar level to snapping down and outs. A sort of modern day version of paying a penny to see the loonies at Colney Hatch.

  • Benjamin Jacob
    Benjamin Jacob Year ago

    Kai rips on the Nikon DF for looking too retro, and rips on the Olympus PEN-F for trying to look like a film camera - but when Leica releases an overpriced digital camera without a screen and for some reason with an advance lever - he loves it!?!? Fanboy much?

  • Jonathan Galang
    Jonathan Galang Year ago

    Good review video. I liked your comment about trying not to chimp after every shot. I try not to, but it happens. This camera is elegant and simple, but definitely a gimmick. Would I spend $8k for a new one? Probably not. Maybe if I saw a really good deal on a used one some day...

  • FL Mail

    Wow, every single shot in focus! That's new when it comes to kai wong's photos.

  • capturedbyannamarie

    Been watching your reviews, since I bought my Olympus epm1 based on your reviews. Learned manual on it and now using an xpro2. Thanks for the great reviews.

  • Inigo Taylor
    Inigo Taylor Year ago

    You wanted the advance lever to actually cock the shutter. That sums up what these cameras have become, a gimmick and a toy. My m6 works and can be repaired, wtf are you going to do with a WiFi switch in 15 years time and at that level investment you will want a camera to still be relevant. What a load of tosh.

    I use and love Leica, but this toy wind on lever is so bad it's embarrassing! it's like the user is being mocked by Leica!

  • CyphDK
    CyphDK Year ago

    It's fun how you say you get used to not having a screen.
    I saw Jared polins review of the Leica and he kept trying to look at the back to see his pictures, and he also couldn't get used to the rangefinder focusing.
    I just found it a bit funny, personally I would probably also need some time to get used to the focusing since I've never used a rangefinder.

  • Antoine Veling

    Great video, as usual, Kai but you must miss Loc. I do. He’s been replaced by a rig.... Oh, and I love that camera and would have grabbed one if that winder cocked the shutter like the Epsom did. What a shame...

    Big fan of Leica here and I do like the no screen solution, but the out of focus viewfinder and the fake lever at 7500 €? As a customer I do not like being taken for a fool...

  • Anneke de Bruyn
    Anneke de Bruyn Year ago +1

    That sensor is not worth 10k so I am seriously wondering why someone would buy it.
    It's not even a richman camera toy anymore.
    Luckily we can mount Leica lenses on any camera these days.

    • Peter Koning
      Peter Koning Year ago

      Makes no sense to hold only the sensor so they build something around it.It never was a rich-men camera toy.

    Leica isn't for photographers, it's for fleecing idiots. It transfers wealth from rich dopes to Leica and helps to balance the economy.
