The camera concept of the LEICA MP is tailored to the craft of the photographer! Every component of the camera was analyzed and improved meticulously, and it embodies the essence of more than 50 years of experience in optics and mechanical design. The optimized rangefinder facilitates highly accurate focusing, even under difficult light conditions.

The MP is a 100% mechanical camera, the battery being necessary only to operate its internal light meter.

Technical gadgetry is purposely limited to those features that truly contribute towards creating a better picture.
