Legendary Russian brand Zenit made a comeback last year with a full-frame digital mirrorless camera Zenit M. After a long wait, the camera is now available for orders in the US. And although Zenit has been famous for being budget-friendly, the Zenit M camera is priced like a Leica.
Leica has launched a new Leica M-E (Typ 240) camera to replace the Leica M-E (Typ 220). It’s aimed at bringing in newcomers to the Leica M system, hoping to entice them in with a low budget price. I say “low budget”… It still costs 4 grand. But it offers a full-frame 24-megapixel CMOS sensor, Leica Maestro processor and access to the complete range of Leica M lenses.
