Leica's new M Typ 262 is being called the entry level M camera, but we all there's no such thing as an entry level M. The company has billed this as a camera for the purists with a focus on photography and photography alone. It has got all the core components of the flagship model, but ditches the video functionality and LiveView feature. It is also lighter than its big brother and has a quieter shutter, all in all purists who just want to take great shots have an ideal new option and one that comes at a lower price point as well. 

$5,195, Leica
