The Leica M11 is a full-frame digital rangefinder camera from Leica Camera AG.[1][2][3][4][5] It was introduced on 13 January 2022.[6] It uses a 60.3-megapixel image sensor, and is compatible with almost all Leica M mount lenses.[7]


The M11 uses a 60-megapixel (MP) back-illuminated sensor,[8] a very thin, bonded two-layer filter in front of its sensor—one for IR blocking, and one for UV blocking[9]—as well as three raw file sizes that each use the full frame (60, 37 and 18 MP).[10] At 18 MP the camera offers up to 15 stops dynamic range. ISO range is 64 to 50000, with 64 being the base ISO. The camera has a built-in charger powered through USB-C. [11]

The M11 supports most M-mount lenses.[7]


The Leica M11 was introduced by Leica on 13 January 2022 in an online webcast from the factory in Wetzlar, Germany.

Along with the camera was also introduced a Visoflex 3.7 MP electronic viewfinder that attaches to the M11 as an accessory,[7] and can be used on the previous Leica M10, Leica M10-P, Leica M10-D and Leica M10-R models with a 2.4 MP resolution.
