Mechanical perfection. Nothing else.
The Leica MP is a supreme tool. Handcrafted, created for the photographic artist. Designed to deliver the essentials. Focused technology for focused photography, without the distraction of automation. It's for making pictures only a true photographer can see, frame and record. Not a quick fling, but the camera for a lifetime.
Minimalizing to the max
Pared down to the absolute essentials, the Leica MP is intuitive in operation but leaves all the crucial decisions and settings to the photographer. It is the classic, purely mechanical alternative to the Leica M7, a camera that offers added comfort and speed with its electronic shutter and aperture-priority metering system.
The development of the Leica MP incorporates over 50 years of experience. It is the quintessential mechanical range/viewfinder camera. It's an experience you will sense as soon as you hold this masterpiece in your hands.
The Leica MP is ever reliable. It relies solely on the skill of the photographer, and can be operated without batteries. The robust body can withstand the harshest conditions. And its controls are all metal.
