Technically at the high level of a rangefinder technology perfected over decades, the Leica M-E stands for the essence of rangefinder photography. With its concentration on essential photographic functions for accustomed dependability in all typical M fields of use, it is the ideal entry-level model for photographers wishing to experience the fascination of M-Photography.

Featuring the proven, high-resolution, 18 MP CCD sensor in full 35 mm format, the Leica M-E offers maximum imaging quality in combination with the distinct advantages of rangefinder photography. Its most distinctive feature is a minimised, purist, design statement. The top deck and base plate are discreetly finished in unobtrusive anthracite grey. The application of a new leather trim with enhanced grip characteristics ideally complements the camera‚Äôs classical design.
