Leica M10 Digital Camera: The $7,000 Explanation

So why are some digital cameras as low as $100 and the Leica M10 carries a $7,000 price tag? We believe we found out. The only way to create a work of art like the precision Leica M10 is to assemble and test it by hand. You won’t find a cold robotic assembly line here. Leica employees inspect every aspect of each camera along the way, all done in a sterile environment.  After all inspections are passed on each M10, the beauty is ready for the photographer with deep pockets and a discerning style.
The Leica M-Series began in 1954 with the M3. The German-made camera was a marvel for its day. Today, the engineers have pushed innovation to create the M10, the slimmest digital M of all time.

Leica craftsmanship sets the bar very high for other manufacturers. The truth is, others can’t match what you will get in a Leica. As a photographer, I will just dream about having a Leica around my neck. Of course, I can always dream big about the Leica M 246. As the saying goes: “If you are going to dream, dream big!”
