Leica has presented the Leica M11, 68 years after the launch of the Leica M3. The Leica M11 has a new 60 MP full-frame sensor, an electronic shutter and a significantly faster Wi-Fi module than its predecessors. Other upgrades for the compact camera are inbound for the camera too, which costs US$8,995.

Leica has launched the Leica M11, a camera that looks like its predecessor, the Leica M10. External similarities aside, the Leica M11 contains a few features that the Leica M10 lacks. For one, Leica has omitted its signature bottom plate, which it has used in every model from the Leica M3 onwards. As a result, you can now remove the Leica M11's battery and memory card.

Additionally, the Leica M11 has a 64% larger battery than its predecessor, which now jumps to 13.37 WH (1,800 mAh/7.4V). Also, Leica has integrated a USB Type-C port for transferring images to a computer, smartphone or an iOS/iPadOS device thanks to Made For iPhone (MFi) certification. Accordingly, Leica bundles a USB Type-C to Lightning cable with the camera. The company includes 64 GB of storage too, for reference.

Above the USB Type-C port and battery sits a 2.95-inch display that Leica has covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Moreover, the Leica has an optional electronic viewfinder that you connect via the camera's hot shoe mount. Arguably, the camera's highlight is its new full-frame CMOS sensor that captures images at up to 60.3 MP when shooting in L-DNG. If you opt for JPG, the Leica M11 peaks at 60.1 MP. The sensor also has an ISO range of 64-50,000.

Incidentally, Leica has included an electronic shutter that offers speeds up to 1/16,000 s. The electronic shutter operates silently, unlike its mechanical equivalent. You can still use the latter though, which ranges between 60 minutes and a 1/4000 s. The camera offers flash sync up to 1/180 s, too.

The Leica M11 is orderable in multiple markets, including the US, where it retails for US$8,995. Leica produces the M11 in Black or Silver Chrome, which weigh 530 g and 640 g, respectively.
