Leica 100 Years Set Features Innovation and Tradition

Leica 100 Years Set Features Innovation and Tradition

M_EDITION_100_YEARS_teaser-480x320 (2)

Leica Boutique Bergen County is pleased to announce that we have come into possession of a very special limited edition Leica set!

To commemorate 100 years of Leica photography (film to digital) the fine folks in Germany have begun to ship a set which includes 2 spectacular camera bodies and 3 unique lenses.

One body is the first film camera Leica has made in over 10 years. The M-A film camera is as traditional as they come. Completely manual and mechanical ala the original M3’s of the late 50’s. Old school traditional for the artist in all of us. The second is an M Monochrome for your digital side: superb quality and dynamic range unmatched by any digital camera. The best of analog and digital black and white photography in one limited edition set. Both are in a unique silver color and the set is capped off with 3 beautiful Summilux 1.4 Aspherical lenses . The stainless steel hand milled lenses are 35mm,50mm and our first look at the brand new 28mmf1.4. The set comes packaged in a specifically designed Rimowa hard aluminum case and is limited to 101 pieces worldwide!

We are, as of this writing, taking delivery of our 1 and only set. Past camera sets usually sell out rather quickly.

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.
