The Leica Handgrip M attaches to the digital M models by replacing the normal base plate and is is especially useful when using the high-speed lenses of the digital Leica M system. It makes it easier to hold the camera still even during long shooting sessions, and it's covered with "vulcanite" leather for improved grip - even when ones hands become sweaty.

        Comments about Leica Handgrip M (Black):

        Increases the ergonomy of the camera and looks good. There is a small variation in the color of the grip and the texture of the grip, but it is almost imperceptible.

        I did not buy the one mande specialy for the Monochrom because I had this grip that I used on my M8.

          grip replaces existing m9 base plate; adds no extra height of the camera. helps you steady the camera as you will need your left hand for focusing. this item will not fit on the m240.

          Comments about Leica Handgrip M (Black):

          Ergonomically very comfortable and makes handling the Leica M somewhat easier. My only disappointment is that I own a Leica M-E, which is stylized in Anthracite Gray, not the usual black or silver, and the handgrip comes with either a silver or black base to match the regular M cameras. A slight aesthetic flaw, but I'm keeping the black as I'm not holding my breath waiting for Leica to offer the handgrip in a matching anthracite gray for owners of the M-E.

            My hands are small, this hand grip is perfect for getting a better grip and also holding the camera steady in low light.
            In typical Leica styling the grip is sturdy and well built. Does not look cheap.

                Digital Leica M cameras with lenses from 24 to 50 can do without a grip, but when you put a 90 or a Noctilux on, it'd really needed.

                Comments about Leica Handgrip M (Black):

                Having grown up with SLR's sporting handgrips and motor drives, when I added the M8 camera to my bag I looked for a way to give the camera a better balance and a more secure feel. This grip gives it to me. I don't feel it compromises the simple, clean lines of the body, in fact I think it enhances it. It is a bit pricey but compared to all of Leica's other accessories, it's a bargain. I bought mine at the Leica shop in Berlin on vacation so I considered it my souvenir.

                This is expensive, but it adds a great deal to the camera handling. It is beautifully finished as well. I find that it adds little to the overall weight, but makes the camera feel lighter.

                Comments about Leica Handgrip M (Black):

                I got a Leica M8.2. I love the camera but I've being missing a better grip specially for low light photos (not picture stabilization here). With the handgrip my M8.2 have really improved its stability and grip. This was the missing link. I know you might think it is not important at all but it also improved the looks of my M8.2. It is a high quality product that integrates to the M Leica as if the handgrip has always been there. Keep in mind that if you don't take low lights photos you might value the better grip you get in any situation. I will recommend this product. A bit in the expensive side but Leica quality. It fits the M9 too.

                    This grip makes one-handed use of the M9 much easier and general two handed use very comfortable.

                    It's downside is expense, but it is built like a tank, and Leica doesn't come cheap.

                        The fit & finish is just perfect .
                        I honestly do not enjoy its looks as it takes away from the clean simple design line of the camera.

                          Works great. The one I received perfectly matches the texture of the M9. Really makes a difference for those of us who carry our cameras in our hands all the time. Also makes the camera a lot more manageable when using gloves in the winter.

                          Of course it is priced in the tradition of Leica, but dollar for dollar, it's a much better value than one of their replacement lens caps. :-)

                          The handgrip makes the Leica feel more solid. It also adds a safety net so that there is little chance of dropping the camera. It is very well made in the Leica tradition. It remains on my camera all the time.
