Leica has announced that the 35mm Summicron F2.0 ASPH and the 50mm F1.4 Summilux ASPH are now available in a black chrome finish. The focusing scale will be red. The 50mm Summilux is very similar to the distressed black paint model offered with the recent released Lenny Kravitz M-P Camera. The design, is suppose to look like a first version 50mm f/1.4 produced from 1959-1961. But with the more modern ASPH design. The 35mm Summicron with the red focusing scale also looks identical to the one in the Correspondent Set. Instead of the black lacquer finish produced for the Kravitz set, the new lenses will have a new black chrome finish. The lenses also include round metal lens shades usually only found with special edition kits. It also has metal lens caps.
The lenses are expected to start shipping at the end of April.
You can pre-order from Leica Boutique at Bergen County Camera by stopping by the store, or by calling 201-664-4113.
The New Special Limited Edition Leica M-P “Correspondent” camera designed by Lenny Kravitz was official announced last week.
The set includes a Leica M-P and lenses that were purposely aged by hand to make it look like a vintage Leica Camera that was heavily used by its owner. The Kit has a Leica 35mm Summicron F2.0 ASPH and a Leica 50mm Summilux 1.4 Lens.
To hold all of these beautiful items it also includes a bespoke case. (Shown Below)

Have you been looking for a great all around Point & Shoot camera with a fantastic image quality? Look no further, the new Leica V Lux Type 114 camera has all your needs. The V Lux has a fantastic zoom range of 25-400 mm. Which can cover pretty much any photographic situation all the way from a wide angle to a telephoto zoom. It also has a built in Macro close up mode for shooting close ups of products, flowers, etc. The Aperture ranges from a 2.8 at the widest point to a f/4 all the way zoomed out. The lens is extremely sharp and gives great detail to your photographs. One of the major upgrades I believe in my opinion is the autofocus feature. The AF on this camera is incredibly fast and accurate. Literally the second you press half way down it grabs focus quickly. If you have children and they are always running around like crazy. The Leica V-Lux has a really nice continuous frame rate. It can shoot 12 frames per second at full resolution. Which will enable you to be able to capture the moment you desire in your photographs specially for moving objects like wildlife & sports. Lastly, if you are a video buff it has razor sharp 4k high definition video. If you would like to try out the camera or have any questions feel free to drop by the store or give us a call anytime.
