    Previously, Leica cameras cost $8000, now they have risen in price a little, it is strange that the manufacturer did not immediately switch to the coveted $9999, apparently decided to gradually, imperceptibly, bring its customers to the cherished line, but let's hope that in the next M12 they will do this and finally - then they will block the road to the elite world of photographic equipment for all rogues.

    • "Joe"

      Open the Leica online store using the link
      https://store.leica-camera.com/de/de/leica-m-cameras?p=1
      and look at the prices.
      The previous model, LEICA M10-R, costs from 8150€ to 8390€.
      The current model, Leica M11, costs 8350€.
      Have risen in price?
      And this despite the fact that inflation in Germany as of November 2021 was 5.2%:https://www.destatis.de/EN/Press/2021/12/PE21_564_611.html
      It is clear that even in spite of the not very favorable situation in the economy, Leica is doing everything possible to keep their excellent cameras affordable and affordable.

      • Victor

        >>Leica goes to great lengths to keep their great cameras affordable and affordable.

        And it's great that the company cares about its fans and does not allow marketers to be self-willed. After all, what would happen if the enthusiasts of their business did not keep the price at $ 9000? Would the world see price tags of $15000 and maybe even $25000? I consider this absolutely unacceptable.

        What other focusing on the eye and ears of insects, real photographers focus only with their hands, fully controlling the process from and to.

        • Gennady

          The main thing is that it is not expensive!

      • Dim

        Thank you very much for the comment, it not only cheered me up, but also allowed me to rethink many things.

      • koba

        a couple of years ago, they saw on the Internet the annual sales statistics for Leica products, where about 50% came from China. China ended 2021 with an unprecedented growth in merchandise sales of $3,6 trillion, factories literally crammed with orders, average lead times increased by almost 25% due to lack of capacity, and revenues increased accordingly, this does not directly affect photographers, but some of the revenue goes to Them, so Leica figured it was the perfect time to raise prices.

    • Oleg

      Just big sales in China, selling like hot cakes

    They are stamped like pies! But in fact, they are all the same! ))

  • Zheka

    This chamber makes no sense.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Leica doesn't think so

      • Zheka

        Someone will certainly buy it, no questions asked, but this price - you can buy a digital medium format

        • Sergei

          can i buy a car and what?

        • "Joe"

          You can also buy a bag: https://www.bragmybag.com/chanel-bags-prices/
          Only it will not replace the Leica camera, as well as the abstract “digital medium format” for this money will be far from perfect, unlike the Leica camera.

          • Zheka

            Come on, hasselblad x1d, medium format pentax 645d, fujifilm. It’s just that this watering can is not suitable for commerce, it is generally suitable for rich uncles who shoot an abstract “street” that no one needs, or for tourists like steve makari. What can not be said about Leica sl-2, or Leica sl2-s. You can shoot weddings, funerals, fashion, even your cat's houses and trees. Plus they have a sane video.

            • "Joe"

              >hasselblad x1d, medium format pentax 645d, fujifilm

            • "Joe"

              >hasselblad x1d, medium format pentax 645d, fujifilm
              As said, a “digital medium format” for the money will be far from perfect, unlike a Leica camera.”
              >It's just that this watering can is not suitable for commerce, it is generally suitable for rich uncles
              For some, any camera more expensive than $ 100 is “for rich uncles”.
              And what is not good for “commerce”? Doesn't take pictures?
              There are no “commercial” and “non-commercial” cameras, there are people who can / want to sell their services and their photos, and there are people who do not sell services / photos. Both categories can use any cameras, it's not about the cameras, but about their owners.

              • Oleg

                It seems that Alexander Medvedev is the name of the photographer, he quite shoots commerce on a manual watering can. It's just that he can still shoot in a jeep, besides, a sectarian. Youtube has his blog.

              • Zheka

                Well, you know better from your sofa that the latest Hasselblads are worse than this rangefinder

        • koba

          The company's annual sales are about $400 million, so its products are bought quite well. In addition to cameras, the company also produces other products that are very popular in certain areas.

  • Sergei

    In my opinion, the possibility of lowering the number of active pixels (binning) by exactly 4 times is more interesting for the quality of the frame. From 60 MP to 15 MP (or from 64 to 16 and further to 4).

    • Rodion

      Of course, you know better - where are Leica's engineers up to your high sofa, from which it is always clear what is truly “more interesting and correct”.

      • Dim

        Are you sure it's from that Lake. Leica, who set the tone, is there anything left in the industry besides a label? As I understand it, all German companies lost the competition to the Japanese and were bought one way or another. Now the Japanese themselves are drowning and now, as I understand it, they are trying to stay in this world due to the tactics that the Germans used in an unsuccessful attempt to survive.

        • B. R. P.

          Are you sure that Leica set the tone in the industry?)

          • Dim

            Well, at least it was one of the iconic companies.

        • "Joe"

          Poor Japanese, still drowning with their more than 90% share of the global camera market ...
          https://www.statista.com/statistics/1004962/global-leading-manufacturers-digital-cameras-market-share-sales-volume/
          And what is left of Leica, you can find in the form of cameras and lenses for them, binoculars, spotting scopes, scopes and rangefinders, surveying equipment, microscopes and histological equipment.
          Separately, it is worth mentioning cinema lenses, the results of which can be easily seen https://www.leitz-cine.com/productions

        • Rodion

          And it doesn't matter. There, all the same, people know more than the regulars of the photoru / lensklab. Or do you disagree?)

        • Zheka

          Leica is Panasonic.

        • Zheka

          And who said that they drown? And because of what? Like everyone is switching back to film? The film renaissance that our leaders dreamed of, like Pasha Kosenko, is killing the figure?

          • Dim

            Maybe this picture will tell you something.

  • Andrey

    shooting 4.5 frames per second - about the same as Canon RP - a disgrace :)

    • B. R. P.

      Thank you, even though the shutter cocking is not a hammer)
