Leica M-P Type 240 Safari

Leica-M-P-Typ-240-Safari-kit-550x184

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-M-P-camera-special-edition-Lenny-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.
