Iconic Design

The Leica M-Family is known for its premium look and feel. With a carefully optimized design and the use of high quality aluminum for the top cover, the black Leica M11 is focused on efficiency and ergonomics, with noticeably less weight. Together with the new scratch-resistant matte paint finish, the black M11 is about 20% lighter than the silver-chrome version, which features a classic solid brass top cover. 

The new M-Sensor 

Stay flexible and choose from 60, 36 or 18 Megapixel resolution for DNG and JPG: The exclusively developed Full Frame BSI CMOS Sensor with Triple Resolution Technology for the M11 is a masterpiece of imaging technology. With its patented filter technology, the M11 produces brilliant images combined with the legendary Leica M-lenses. And for the first time, multi-field light metering in rangefinder mode gives Leica M photographers a reliable tool to concentrate even more on their subject, and less on light metering.

Maestro III Processor

The fluid and responsive operation of the M11 is optimized by the powerful Maestro III processor. Its advanced algorithm enables the M11 to produce images with three different resolutions always using the full sensor and delivering unprecedented digital image quality. Ready to shoot nearly endlessly even at 36 Megapixel DNG.

Wide ISO- and Dynamic Range

The M11 is impressive in every lighting situation. With its Dual Pixel Gain technology, the M11 offers a dynamic range up to 15 stops at ISO 64. Every shot shows the finest tonal separations and very low noise with a natural and elegant look. The maximum sensitivity of ISO 50,000 enables you to take pictures even in extreme low light situations. On the opposite you can shoot in very bright light situations with fast lenses and shutter speeds up to 1/16000s thanks to the new electronic shutter.


The Leica M11 is a certified Made for iPhone® and iPad® product. As such the Leica M11 offers a seamless direct cable connection to iPhones and iPads. Simply connect your M11 to your iPhone using the included Leica FOTOS cable for fast photo download and control of your camera with the Leica FOTOS app. For iPads with USB-C connector you can use the original USB-C cable of your device. The app also provides over-the-air software updates, that will support easy updating to the new firmware, that will be available in the second half of 2022 activating the advanced Bluetooth® features of the M11.

High-Resolution Touch Display

Judge your images on the crystal clear touch display with 2.3 Million Pixel, a brightness of 800 nits and 100% sRGB color gamut. The new Status Screen grants direct access to all important functions and with an additional FN Button at the top plate, the Leica M11 provides more options to customize the camera to your individual needs.

Dual Memory Concept

Unique to the M11 is the deliberate omission of the traditional base plate, offering direct access to the battery, the USB-C port and the SD card. In addition to the UHS-II SD card slot, the Leica M11 is equipped with an internal storage capacity of 64 GB, allowing photographers to save image files simultaneously onto two different storage media. 

Better Stamina

Shoot considerably longer with a single charge. The new battery of the M11 with 1800 mAh stores 64% more energy than its predecessors and in addition, the overall operation of the camera is more energy efficient than in previous models. The USB-C port also serves to charge the camera’s battery with most USB-C Chargers.

Digital Zoom

Get even closer to the subject with the integrated Digital Zoom feature. Shoot in Live View in both JPG and DNG and choose between a 1.3x and 1.8x zoom-factor of your focal length. As always, the DNG file still contains all image data of the entire sensor area.

Leica has been making history for decades – with cameras that have always been ahead of their times. Throughout all these years, Leica has always kept a tight focus on sustainability. In the 1950s, Leica created a timeless and enduring standard – the Leica M-Bayonet: almost all M-Lenses produced ever since can be mounted and used on today’s Leica M11. Our optical instruments are timeless and faithful companions with enduring reliability and an exceptionally long life.
