The new M10 from Leica is the slimmest (and the most stylish) retro-esque camera we've ever seen

We're big fans of Leica's iconic retro-styled cameras, so we're more than a little excited to learn the German firm is releasing its slimmest and most intuitive model yet.

The M10, the latest addition to the M rangefinder range, the M10 has a top plate depth of just 33.75mm – four millimetres less than its closest relative, the Leica M (Typ 240). The Leica M10 is now the slimmest digital M to date.

It's easily Leica's most impressive offering yet, with a field of view that's been enlarged by 30% and the magnification factor has been increased to 0.73. The M10 also has a 24 MP, full-frame CMOS sensor developed specifically for this camera, offering impressive dynamic range, excellent contrast rendition, exceptional sharpness and fine detail resolution.

The Leica M10 digital rangefinder goes on sale today, with a suggested retail price of £5,600.

Run with style (and a serious retro chic) with this sportswear collection from VIVOBAREFOOT and Iffley Road

British active wear firm Iffley Road has teamed up with barefoot shoe specialist VIVOBAREFOOT to create a new capsule collection that uses the same super soft, highly wicking bespoke dri-release piqué fabric that Iffley Road is known and loved for and features a striking design.

This collection - which comprises a t-shirt and vest design - marks the second collaboration between the two innovative running brands. The first edition saw Iffley Road develop a kit for VIVOBAREFOOT’s elite racing team, with tops designed to stand out during races and on the podium.

The Iffley Road X VIVOBAREFOOT collection is available from today from £53. You can order them from iffleyroad.com and vivobarefoot.com.
