Leica Prices Increasing on May 1st!

 

On May 1, 2018 Leica is increasing prices on a wide range of products by an average of about 5%. Affected products include most M bodies (film and digital), nearly all M lenses, the black Q, TL2, S (Typ 007), many S lenses and a few other items (66 in total). To quote Leica “this revision is necessary due to the current exchange rates and the increase in raw materials and production costs.” This does make sense, as every year about this time we tend to see some increases, designed to reflect the ever-rising costs involved with manufacturing hand-built products from exotic, expensive materials.
 
There are no increases within the SL-system, and recently announced products such as the Thambar-M 90mm, Noctilux-M 75mm, and CL are not affected. If you were thinking about the M10, best to grab one before months’ end as the price is going up $400. The black Q sees an increase of $245 (making it the same price as the silver Q) and TL2 bodies go up $245 as well. If you have any questions feel free to call or stop by the store and we will be more than happy to help.

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.

*UPDATE* 03.29.18 (SOLD) If you are interested in purchasing please call or stop by the store and we can help you out!

 

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.

Introducing the new Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) called the “Stealth Edition.”

Leica has just announced a new special edition of the Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) called the “Stealth Edition.” If you’re a fan of minimalism and matte black, this may be a look that tickles your fancy.

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.

 

But take the camera into a dark environment and another unique design feature appears: the lettering and accents of the camera glow in the dark.

 

“For me the Leica M system personifies the pursuit of perfection in an object designed for a singular purpose,” Wainwright says. “Inspired by that, I was aiming to try and further refine and perfect the M Monochrom – an almost impossible task – by distilling it to its purest form and highlighting the stealth nature of the camera and lens.”

 

“The ‘Stealth Edition’ of the Leica M Monochrom is quite possibly the most discreet camera on the market today, with both camera and lens dressed in an unassuming black matte finish and minimal branding to eliminate any distractions from the purity and integrity of the design,” Leica says. “Only the most important engravings for photographic settings are highlighted on both the camera and lens, each crafted with a with a striking glow in dark fluorescent paint for optimal use in low-light situations.

“A jet-black, extremely smooth cowhide leather trim adds a layer of texture to the camera and excellent grip for the on-the-go photographer.”
