When it comes to photographic precision and high-end technology in cameras, one brand that can be relied upon without a doubt is Leica. The marquee has presented connoisseurs with some of the best instruments over the years, a lot of which were covered in the quintessential olive green – a color that marked its best version over decades. Donning the same hue this time around is the exclusive M10-P that will come in a limited Safari edition and will be accompanied by the much touted for Summicron-M 50 f/2 lens.
The camera will bear the same specifications and performance as the serial production version but will flaunt an elevated design that includes the metal top cap and the bottom plate of its body being coated in a compelling olive-green hue. It will also boast of a brandy-colored cow hide carrying strap and a complimenting card holder to go with it. As for the lens, this will be the first time that the Summicron-M 50 f/2 will feature a special olive-green paint finish with the focal length engravings dyed in bold red and all other aperture engravings marked in white.
The elusive M10-P Safari edition will further come minus the marquee’s usual branding including the trademark red badge that adorns most of its models. Only 1500 camera bodies and 500 lenses of the Safari edition will be sold worldwide, with the former being priced at approximately $8,920 USD and later going down for $2,860 USD each. If green is your color, you wouldn’t want to miss out on Leica’s Safari edition M10-P!
