Why the Leica M is so unique

Another great video from those lovely chaps over at DigitalRev. This time all about the Leica M system, possibly the greatest and most influential camera system ever produced.

Their cameras are sublime in their simplicity, yet highly complex, finely engineered machines.

Hope you enjoy the video.

Cheers
