[ Update – Our Leica Monochrom Stealth Edition is sold ]
The new Leica M Monochrom “Stealth Edition”.
The new special edition of the Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) called the “Stealth Edition limited to only 125 worldwide! The camera was designed by Marcus Wainwright, the founder and CEO of the fashion label Rag & Bone. A fan of black-and-white photography — the Leica M Monochrom is a B&W-only camera — Wainwright wanted to emphasize the stealthy nature of shooting Leica cameras.
The Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) “Stealth Edition” features a matte black look over its entire body — even most of the standard white lettering on the buttons have been darkened. It also comes with a matching Summicron-M 35 mm f/2 ASPH lens.

This latest lens adds to the legacy of the Noctilux family, which was started by the introduction of the Leica Noctilux 50mm f/1.2 at Photokina back in 1966.
“All Noctilux-M lenses to this day are special for their rendering and aesthetic when shot wide-open, yielding a three-dimensional ‘pop’ that separates its subjects from the background like no other lenses,” Leica says. “The out-of-focus areas behind the subject is smooth and pleasing to the eye, giving a lovely soft background even in the darkest of lighting scenarios.”
The Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 ASPH features an even shallower depth of field than the modern Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 APSH. It has a close focusing distance of 0.85mm (~2.8 feet) and a reproduction ratio of 0.85mm.
Inside the lens is an 11-blade aperture that produces a pleasing bokeh in out of focus areas of photos.
On the front of the Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 is an integrated lens hood that can be extended or retracted by simply twisting the lens. There’s also a tripod adapter for mounting the lens onto a tripod.
