New Gear: Leica M-D Is a Digital Rangefinder Camera With No LCD Screen

Back in 2014, Leica announced the M Edition 60, a special-edition digital camera with no LCD screen designed to look just like their iconic M-series film cameras. Now, Leica has announced the M-D, which brings the screen-free shooting experience to the production market.

From an imaging standpoint, the M-D is pretty much identical to the regular Leica M, using a 24-megapixel full-frame sensor. The layout is basically the same, too, which shouldn’t be a surprise considering the emphasis Leica typically puts on heritage with this camera line. The back of the camera, however, has only a tactile ISO dial where you’d expect to see the screen.

That means you get no Live View, no video capture, and most notably, no checking out the photo you just took to see if it’s in focus or if the exposure is correct.
