Today, Leica Camera has released firmware version 2.7.5.0 for its M10, M10-P and M10-D digital rangefinder cameras. The firmware primarily addresses a few small bugs while adding stability and overall software improvements. Be aware that this is a large update, taking significantly longer to install than prior updates. So, an installation time up to 10 minutes is perfectly normal.

    I found when installing this update that I was NOT prompted to save my settings. When the update was done my existing settings had not been altered or deleted. Maybe Leica has found the secret to updating without resetting the camera.

    Same thing happened with my M10D. It’s now on its way to Germany to be fixed.
