4/5

PhotoBite Leica M11 review -
Leica M11:- Although we've given the Leica M11 4/5, it's an all-round score and would almost certainly score 5/5 for pure street & documentary photographers. It's a masterpiece and even with some of the new quirks, displays much that the brand is known and loved for. It's a real gem.

Pros

  • Incredible build quality and finish
  • Great high resolution sensor and stunning lenses
  • Inbuilt storage and USB-C port for convenience

Cons

  • Lack of autofocus, EVF and video limits a variety of uses
  • High cost of both body and first party lenses
  • Bad grip for long shooting sessions
