The ultimate tool
You never know when inspiration will strike

The sleek and reliable Leica MP can be operated without batteries for all exposure times, under any weather conditions. No matter what Mother Nature throws at you, your Leica is ready to go.

The best things come in small packages

The Leica MP has been pared down to the essentials. Without an electronic shutter, it will stay quietly out of the way, leaving crucial decisions up to you, the photographer.

Control over your creativity

As the Leica M Monochrom has no need for a colour filter, there’s also no need to calculate luminance values by interpolation. The result: black-and-white pictures with unrivalled sharpness – even when shooting in low light.


The Leica MP is built for long life and lasting value. This is guaranteed by Leica’s commitment to using only the finest materials and the highest precision manufacturing techniques. Time and time again, the Leica MP has proven its dependability under the most averse conditions.

Maximum strength minimalism

The Leica MP’s strong body – crafted exclusively in metal – will withstand the worst conditions without fail, and batteries are only needed for metering. In fact, skilled photographers can ignore the electronics completely. Uncompromising dependability for all occasions.


By definition, photography is writing with light, and the Leica MP enables the photographer to master even the most difficult lighting situations. The camera offers you complete creative control; its selective TTL metering system merely offers supporting data to help you choose the ideal exposure parameters.

Individualism that improves with age

The Leica MP is available in two different body finishes: silver chrome and black paint. After years of hard use, when a bit of bright brass begins to show through, it’s a sure sign to savvy photographers that the camera and its owner have shared many memorable experiences.


Most professionals love the red Leica dot on their cameras, but for the sake of maintaining a low profile, the Leica MP was manufactured without this iconic emblem. Of course, knowledgeable owners and aficionados can identify a Leica anywhere without the need for special branding. The Leica inscription on the top deck is identification enough.
