The release of a brand new Leica camera is always a cause for significant celebration, and this particular offering -- dubbed the Leica M-D -- is designed to elicit this sort of reaction from old-school and purist photographers and camera lovers.
If you're all about the WiFi, connectivity and latest gizmos in your camera, the new Leica camera isn't for you. But it's absolutely a great option for photographers who want to move away from the saturated, high-tech features and embrace old-school photography. Indeed this camera does not feature WiFi and is also devoid of autofocus -- it even lacks an electronic screen! This feature actually makes the camera more appealing to photographers who want to test themselves and their ability to focus on the shot.
The deliberate absence of these modern features makes the new Leica camera a great option for photographers with an appreciation of old-school snapping.
