Leica Camera presents the Leica M-P Set ‘SAFARI’. This set comprises of the Leica M-P (Typ 240) Safari edition, Leica Summicron-M 35mm/f2 ASPH with round metal lens hood, a full grain cowhide carrying strap and matching SD & business card holder.

Leica’s safari/olive edition cameras date back to 1960 with the Leica M1 ‘Olive‘. Made initially for the military, the safari/olive cameras’ unique color stands out. Over the years, a handful of safari/olive editions were produced. Many of these limited edition cameras are highly prized collectibles.

The Leica M-P Set ‘SAFARI’ has an olive lacquered top cover, leatherette and bottom plate. The shutter speed dial, the On/Off switch, the release button, the hot shoe and some other details have a silver finish. The engraving on the top cover is reminiscent of the first safari camera in 1960 and has the classic Leica logo inscribed on one line and the wording ‘WETZLAR GERMANY’ on the second line. The 35mm/f2 ASPH has a silver chrome finish with a matching classic round metal lens hood. This set comes in a new packaging including a presentation box.

The Leica M-P Set ‘SAFARI’ will be available at Leica Stores, Leica Boutiques and Leica Dealers. There are 1500 sets available worldwide. The technical data of the camera and lens are identical to the serial versions.

Leica M-P “Correspondent” by Lenny Kravitz for Kravitz Design

Leica Camera presents the LEICA M-P ‘CORRESPONDENT’ BY LENNY KRAVITZ FOR KRAVITZ DESIGN. This set was designed in collaboration with recording artist, Lenny Kravitz. Presented in a handmade classic case, the set comprises of a Leica M-P, Leica Summicron-M 35mm/f2 ASPH and Leica Summilux-M 50mm/f1.4 ASPH.

The collaboration with Lenny Kravitz was born out of the artist’s passion for photography. The first camera Kravitz used was his father’s Leicaflex which he received at age 21, as a gift from his father. The distinctive design of the LEICA M-P ‘CORRESPONDENT‘ BY LENNY KRAVITZ FOR KRAVITZ DESIGN is reminiscent of a beautifully aged Leicaflex. The finish of each camera and lens is individually handcrafted with the edges displaying a patina similar to equipment which has seen years of constant use.

The camera and case cladding, the outer side of the carrying strap and wrist loop are made of snake skin leather. The case is handcrafted in Germany with the metal parts of the case showing a patina similar to that of the camera and lenses.

Unique to this set, the Leica Summilux-M 50mm/f1.4 ASPH has the classic outer design of its predecessor from 1959 with its profiled distance setting ring and the optical design of the current model. The lens hood, front and rear caps and body cap are made of metal.

There are 125 sets available worldwide. The technical data of the camera and lenses are identical to the serial versions.

 

 

Leica 100 Years Set Features Innovation and Tradition

Leica 100 Years Set Features Innovation and Tradition

M_EDITION_100_YEARS_teaser-480x320Leica Boutique Bergen County is pleased to announce that we have just come into possession of a very special limited edition Leica set!  To commemorate 100 years of Leica photography (film to digital) Leica has begun shipping a set to include 2 spectacular camera bodies and 3 unique lenses.

The set includes:

Leica M-A – A purely mechanical film camera, the Leica M-A is a precision instrument that has been so dramatically reduced to the essentials that it opens up entirely new creative horizons for photographers. It may have no monitor, no exposure meter, and no battery, but what it does have is a mechanical quality that makes Leica’s 100 years of experience instantly tangible. Photographers can read the shutter speed and aperture directly from the camera and lens and so concentrate fully on their subject. The acoustic signature of the shutter release of a Leica M-A is a delight that immediately reveals the precision-engineered excellence of its origin.

Leica M Monochrom  – The Leica M Monochrom is the world’s first digital 35 mm format camera to capture true black and white images. Fine clarity and dynamics make it the perfect tool for all who are passionate about monochrome photography. Featuring a new full-frame, 35 mm format sensor with a full native resolution of 18 megapixels,  it only records true luminance values. Thus delivering true black and white photographs and enabling photographers to capture images with greater brilliance, superior sharpness, enhanced contrast, and finer resolution than that of medium format.

Leica Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH. – This lens  pairs moderate wide-angle characteristics with natural dimension, which make this focal length very versatile. Whether it is a matter of selective focus in the close-up range, high-contrast available-light applications or landscape shots with immense depth of field, this lens performs wonderfully in any situation.

Leica Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH.- The know-how of Leica’s engineers, together with the latest developments in manufacturing technology, has resulted in this outstanding standard lens. It has a natural image angle that corresponds to a human eye view and is ideal for available-light situations, selective-focus shots, and even fine art photography – making it a top choice in assembling a Leica M-Lens outfit.

Leica Summilux-M 28mm f/1.4 ASPH.-This brand new wide angle lens currently exclusively available in this set, completes the perfect trio of lenses for any photographer searching for quality above all else.

The set comes packaged in a specifically designed Rimowa hard aluminum case and is limited to 101 pieces worldwide!

We currently have in stock our one and only set.

Please call our boutique at 201-664-4113 or 1-800-841-4118 and ask to speak to Bob or Jeremy in our Leica Boutique.
