Overview
  • 1Description

Born after 17 years of design, the Leica M7 TTL .72 Rangefinder Camera is a fantastic hybrid of classic Leica values with modern electronic advantages which results in a camera that's faster than ever yet still endowed with the 'soul' of a Leica. There's a certain feel to the mechanical operation of a Leica M's functions that's oddly satisfying in an emotional context, and this is the hallmark of the Leica brand. That feel has not changed, but instead been infused with aperture-priority autoexposure, an informative viewfinder, and high-speed TTL flash synchronization. The Leica M7 is as whisper-quiet, reliable, and easily focused as any Leica M camera, but now has the speed and control that only the modern accompaniments can give.

The M7's classic dimensions are identical to the M3 first introduced in 1954-a real testament to the brilliance of the design. This is a camera that's incredibly reliable and as quiet as they come, with a broad selection of available lenses in both the new and used markets. The M7 TTL, when used with Lecia-specific Metz flashes, can sync at up to 1/1000th second with TTL flash exposure control-a real improvement over prior models. The viewfinder, such an important part of the M experience, retains its classic brightness and framing lines but now unobtrusively adds information upon your shutter speed, the film speed, the exposure mode, and the flash readiness. The M7 now automatically recognizes the film speed, and provides aperture-priority autoexposure. It only needs two tiny button batteries which last a long time, but also has 1/60th and 1/125th manual shutter speeds if needed.

Broad Lens Availability
A large assortment of high-performance lenses is available, ranging from 21-135mm and with speeds as fast as f/1.0.
Solid Dependability
Extremely reliable performance, even under adverse conditions.
Quiet & Discreet
The electronically-controlled, rubberized cloth shutter is still remarkably quiet, yet as accurate as a modern vertical-travel metal shutter.
Fast & Flexible Flash Capability
Flash speeds of up to 1/1000th/second - with dedicated Metz flash units - give the Leica shooter the option of daylight fill-flash with large background-blurring apertures.
Classic Viewfinder with Electronic Upgrades
The improved viewfinder still displays classic framelines and manual metering, yet unobtrusively provides information on shutter speeds, film-speed setting, exposure mode & flash readiness along the bottom.
Adjustable-Brightness Viewfinder
Viewfinder information brightness is automatically adjusted to match ambient light conditions.
Auto Film Recognition
Recognizes DX film coding.
All-Mechanical Operation Option
Two all-mechanical shutter speeds of 1/60th & 1/125th/second are available, for batteryless performance.
Broad Range of Shutter Speeds
Stepless shutter speeds range from 1/1000th/second - 32 seconds in aperture-priority autoexposure mode, for quick adjustments with total control for the photographer.
Classic Styling
The M7 retains the classic Leica M proportions shared by the M3, M4 & M6 series cameras.
