About the Leica M7

Classics are works that clash with the present. They are never modified - instead they are re-interpreted on the basis of a changed world: With the LEICA M7, a classic celebrates a premiere. Convenience and fast operation of the camera have been enhanced even further with automatic shutter speed control and detail improvements. The Leica cloth focal plane shutter - with its vibration-free and quiet action is a must for a genuine Leica M camera - is now controlled electronically. Form, size and the proven operating concept were retained without changes. Virtually all system components of the preceding models remain compatible. Photography with the LEICA M7 is a surprisingly and yet unchanged experience.

The LEICA M7 is available with the three viewfinder magnifications of 0.58 x, 0.72 x, and 0.85 x. It is tailored ideally to the preferences and needs of the photographer : The 0.58 x magnification for a great overview with wide-angle lenses and for eyeglass wearers. 0.72 x as a universal standard (also featured on the black lacquer version). 0.85 x for accurate focusing with medium focal length lenses and with Leica M tele lenses.
