Hands-on with the hand-polished Leica T camera

Tim Hornyak | May 12, 2014
Leica's new T-System digital camera may have one of the most tedious ads ever made, but the camera's looks are far from boring.

While the lenses are made in Japan, the body itself is made in Germany, as the wording below the T's touchscreen proclaims.

Evaluating the Leica T inevitably comes down to whether it's worth the suggested retail price of US$1,850 for the body alone, with each lens costing around as much.

The back-to-basics, sleek styling is its own fashion statement, but one that may not generate too many new converts to the brand due to the price. As a thoroughly non-retro Leica, however, the T is a unique combination of style and performance that will be a touchstone for future models.
