Leica M10-D: the digital rangefinder with no screen set for comeback

Leica M-D

Leica seems to be about to announce a digital camera that goes right back to basics, and doesn't even have a built-in rangefinder. And just like traditional film cameras,  it also even has a crank lever for recocking the shutter. 

The Leica M10-D is rumored to be launched on October 24 at the annual PhotoPlus Expo in New York. Pictures of the new camera were first leaked by Japanese rumor site Nokishita.
