Leica UK has today announced a new part-exchange programme for M owners. For the first time owners of previous M cameras will be able to get an instant quotation top swap for the latest M, type 240.
I suspect the EOS M is on its way out and the price could fall even further before stocks eventually evaporate. But at this price you are getting a lot of competence for your money and, as I said in June, it is perhaps time to put your toe in the water before the little Canon is sold into oblivion.
Many of us have been experimenting with using Leica M or R lenses on Sony's ground-breaking full-frame A7 and A7r. It's the first chance we've had to try our glass on a full-frame mirrorless camera other than the Leica M.
Ever since he got his hands on a new Sony RX10, my friend Ralf Meier in Washington DC has been brushing up his street-tog creed. He recently took the super zoom, with its 1in sensor, to China and these shots are a record of street life in Shanghai.
David Bell, Leica's UK managing director, has stepped down. In his eight years he has transformed the German manufacturer's presence in Britain and has overseen the introduction of significant new models, including the M and Monochrom.
