It's built for one thing and one thing only. But when it comes to black and white photography, the Leica M Monochrom (Type 246) might be the best camera in the world. It features a brand-new, full-frame 24-megapixel sensor that, thanks to its lack of a color filter, takes incredibly sharp photos all the way up to ISO 25,000. Helping it along is the Maestro image processor and a 2GB buffer for faster shooting and review, compatibility with both Leica M and Leica R lenses, and a 3-inch LCD screen with a sapphire cover. Despite all the improvements, it still features the company's signature, tank-like rangefinder design with top and bottom plates of solid brass sandwiching the magnesium alloy body.
