Leica has announced the Leica M9-P, a variation of the 18 megapixel full-frame Leica M9, you can read our Leica M9 review here. The new Leica M9-P is more discrete, and lacks the red dot on the front, a new scratch-resistant cover for the LCD monitor, anti-reflective coating, and is available in silver chrome, or black paint for £5395 RRP inc VAT with a two year warranty. Leica has also announced the new Leica Super-Elmar-M f/3.4 21mm ASPH lens, to go with the new camera.

From Leica: Unobtrusive, Discreet, and Resilient: the New Leica M9-P

The M9 now has a twin sister, the new Leica M9-P. In technological terms, they are absolutely identical twins and feature precisely the same high performance qualities. The only differences are found in a few characteristic details.

The compact size of Leica M cameras, their unobtrusive looks, minimalist design, and the almost inaudible sound of their shutters make it possible for Leica M photographers to virtually melt into the background. The M9-P now makes photography even more unobtrusive - instead of the red dot on the front, it now bears a restrained Leica logogram on the top deck. And, in turn, is even more discreet.

The Leica M9-P now features an extremely scratch-resistant, almost unbreakable, sapphire crystal cover for its LCD monitor display. Sapphire crystal is one of the world's hardest materials and so hard that it can only be worked with special diamond-cutting tools. The antireflective coating on both sides of the monitor cover glass further improves image reviewing, particularly in unfavorable lighting conditions.

The Leica M9-P is optionally available in the classical Leica silver chrome camera finish or in black paint - the M9 offers two options, elegant steel gray or black paint. The Leica M9-P also features vulcanite leathering with particularly good grip characteristics. More information on Leica's website.

Do they giew a price for the lens? I am always confused by digital lenses; would that give the same angle of view as a 21mm lens on a 35mm film camera?

Regarding the angle of view: Yes, the M9 has a full-frame sensor so a 21mm lens has a 21mm angle of view and so on.

That is very wide. I use a 24mm [ amongst others] on an R8 I think anything wider would produce strange looking pictures.
