Leica has issued new, updated firmware for the entire range of Leica M10 and M240-generation cameras. This includes the M10-R, M10-P, M10 Monochrom, M10, and M10-D from the current generation, as well as the M (Typ 240), M-P (Typ 240), M (Typ 262), M-D (Typ 262) and the M Monochrom (Typ 246) from the prior generation. The firmware adds 6-bit code support and correction profiles for new lenses. Given the timing, seems that support is primarily aimed at the introduction and subsequent shipping of the recently re-introduced 50mm f/1.2 Noctilux-M ASPH.

For the M10-R, M10-P and M10 Monochrom, the firmware update also includes the new Leica Perspective Control (LPC) feature. You can read more about that functionality here. Even if there are no other bug fixes or improvements under the hood for the other cameras, according to the release notes, it's always good practice to keep updated to the latest firmware version. To simplify, we've aggregated all the firmware files by camera type below. Simply click the one for your camera to download, then check below for instructions based on your camera model.
