The buffer memory capacity of the M-P has been increased to 2 GB, twice that of the M. The camera features an extremely scratch-resistant sapphire crystal cover for its LCD monitor.
Many photographers who use Leica Ms tape over the red Leica logo . . . so, yes, the M-P omits the logo. Instead, the top plate of the camera is engraved with a subtle Leica script.
Other new details of the camera include a frame selection lever with which bright-line frames for six different focal lengths can be projected into the viewfinder to simulate subject framing. The corresponding frames are shown in pairs for the focal lengths 28 and 90 mm, 35 and 135 mm or 50 and 75 mm.
The Leica M-P is available now in two different versions: black-paint and traditional silver chrome.
