While we recently shared with you the news of Leica’s limited addition Panda-themed Camera, the German-based camera manufacturer surprises us once again with its all-new Titanium camera set. The brand’s M-P ‘Titanium’ Set is a part of its fifth edition and comes in an exceptionally elegant and distinctive appearance.
This unique new addition set offers an M-P (Typ 240) digital functionality camera and two lenses – a Leica Summicron-M 28mm f/2 ASPH and a Leica APO-Summicron-M 50mm f/2 ASPH. The set’s plate and control elements are made from solid titanium, rendering a robust look to it while additionally reducing its weight by approximately 90 grams as compared to the standard production model. More spunky features include the classic Leica engraving on the top plate with an exclusive special edition serial number on the accessory shoe. If this isn’t enough, the equipment’s body is fitted with a classy full-grain leather grim giving it an exceptionally good grip along with a matching leather sling strap. Its aluminum lenses come with a perfect anodized titanium finish with the focusing length distances and focal length specifications engraved on it in a striking red color.
The new addition set encompassed every technicality of the standard production while also offering functional benefits of the iconic Leica M digital rangefinder system cameras. While the Leica Summicron-M 28mm f/2 ASPH is a perfect fit for reportage photography with its compact size, wide-angle lens, and fast performance, Leica APO-Summicron-M 50mm f/2 ASPH is an equally outstanding catch with its unparalleled resolution and sophisticated sharpness. The limited-edition sets will be made available this fall, retailing at £17,900 (around $23,700). With the introduction of the all-new titanium set, we wonder what fate the brand’s new, to- be- released digital M rangefinder holds.
