Van Morrison once said: “There is no black and white situation. It’s all part of life. Highs, lows, middles.” Those people in Solms must have such agreement, and in this particular day, May 10, 2012 (M 10?) Leica introduced their 10th M model, The M Monochrom, an un-mistakenly beautiful camera. At last, there is still some manufacturers who consider the process of making an image still can be very fun, and sexy – from a male point of view. Whether the MM can produce the ultimate image is not much of a topic, there are people believe and people don’t; yet Leica is a company with such scale that selling tens of thousand cameras per model per year is not considered failure. German once again demonstrates to Japanese how a camera should be treated and designed, while Japanese teach Germans how to sell many cameras in return. A fair world?
