Available next week, Leica unveils its next generation Monochrom camera, the M Monochrom Typ 246. At the core of the camera is an all-new, black-and-white 24-megapixel full-frame sensor and it also receives the Leica Maestro image processor found in its color-sensor counterpart and 2GB of RAM that makes it capable of sequential shooting that is three times faster than the previous model. 

You also get a virtually indestructible sapphire covered, 921k pixel LCD display with anti-reflective coating, up to 25,000 ISO, 1080p video recording, and the body features magnesium construction and solid brass top and base plates which are finished in black chrome. Later this summer Leica will also be releasing a set of color filters in yellow, green, and orange.
