Leica M P 240 camera frontLeica cameras don’t come cheap and are usually used by those who can truly appreciate photography, and by those who can afford it. That being said if you’re looking for a slight upgrade on the Leica M 240, you might be interested to learn that Leica has recently announced a slightly upgraded model.

This upgraded model comes in the form of the Leica M-P 240 which is essentially the M 240 with some slight changes, which hopefully for photographers will be for the better. The overall design of the camera remains unchanged, although with the M-P 240, Leica has done away with the Leica logo and the “M” letter on the front side to provide a cleaner look.

Leica has also introduced a scratch resistant display cover made from sapphire glass and have also doubled the image buffer of 2GB, thus allowing photographers to shoot as many as 24 images at continuous speed of 3fps. Photographers will also be able to perform manual viewfinder frame selection with a traditional “frame selector”.

Unfortunately just like most Leica cameras, the M-P 240 does not come cheap at $7,950. The camera is currently up for pre-order and is available in both black and silver chrome, so if you reckon these changes makes the camera a good purchase, what are you waiting for?
