Leica announced the arrival of the M-10P this week and it is billing it as the most inconspicuous camera in the line and great for discrete shooting. The camera features a virtually silent mechanical shutter, ditches the iconic red dot and the front branding, and, most notably, adds a touchscreen.
This is the first camera in the M series to include a touchscreen, so if you’re not particularly skilled when it comes to focusing with a rangefinder, you can tap on your subject in live view. The touchscreen allows for swiping and pinch-to-zoom functions as well. The M-10P has a built in level gauge to help with framing and avoiding the dreaded crooked horizon line.
