What is the sensor size of the Leica M10-R?

The Leica M10-R is a digital camera that has a full frame sensor at its core. This imager measures 35.8mm in width and 23.9mm in height, so that the total imaging area of the sensor amounts to 856 mm2.

The M10-R provides an image resolution of 40.9 megapixels, based on 7 864 horizontal pixels and 5 200 vertical pixels.

Sensor size comparison with a film slide

The sensor diagonal measures 43mm, which gives rise to a format factor (or crop factor) of 1.0. Therefore, the Leica M10-R is a full-frame camera, as its sensor size corresponds to that of a traditional 35mm film slide or negative.

Sensor specs and performance

The table below compares the sensor specs of the Leica M10-R to those of several similar cameras. The reported DXO values are indicators of the sensor's imaging quality (higher is better), covering color depth (DXO Portrait), dynamic range (DXO Landscape), and high-ISO noise (DXO Sports). Larger sensor cameras tend to outperform cameras of the same generation that are equipped with a smaller imager. On the other hand, larger sensors are more expensive and require bigger and heavier lenses than smaller light receptors.
