Rumour of a new Leica Monochrom Type 230


This week to celebrate Leica’s 100 year of making 35mm camera’s a number of special additions were announced as well as a Leica M Monochrom in silver.

But someone with did spot something far more exciting which was published on the website.  The current Monochrom is based on the M9 while its likely that the new Monochrom is based on the current Leica M240.

It will be interesting to see what the ISO performance will be like. The current Monochrome while CCD based has fantastic high ISO with the Bayer array removed. I expect the CMOS M 240 sensor to be used, so without its Bayer filter I expect off the charts ISO performance.
