Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, and we can’t agree more. But there are some things that are universally considered as pretty, like the Leica M (Typ 262) camera; there can’t be a better example, in my opinion, of ‘beauty in simplicity.’ And now, Leica has released a limited edition M Typ 262 in an eye-catching red anodized finish, which looks even better than the standard model in black. The special edition camera was unveiled earlier this month at an event in Wetzlar. The new-look of the camera has been designed to match the special edition Leica Summicron-M 50 mm f/2 ASPH lens which came with the same red anodized finish and was released in 2016.
Following the launch of the red APO-Summicron-M 50 mm lens last year, we're proud to announce the Leica M (Typ 262) in a red anodized finish! The Leica M (Typ 262) “red anodized finish” features a top plate and base plate machined from solid aluminum and anodized in an attractive red color. This special edition camera includes a serial number engraved on its hot shoe making it unique to the entire Leica collection. Only 100 units are made worldwide and can be purchased in Leica Stores and Boutiques in North America. #LeicaCameraUSA #LeicaM #Leica #Photography #🔴📷
The special edition M Typ 262 camera is identical to the standard version in terms of the technical specifications. It’s a rangefinder-style full frame mirrorless camera with a 24-megapixel censor. Only 100 examples will be made for sale across the world, each with a unique serial number. If you want one for yourself, you’ll have to shell out $7,800 for it.
