The Leica M-P ‘TITANIUM’ is the fifth annual edition to be made from titanium, lending the camera and lens an exceptionally elegant and distinctive appearance. The set consists of a Leica M-P
(Typ 240) digital camera and two lenses – a Leica Summicron-M 28mm f/2 ASPH. and a Leica
APO-Summicron-M 50mm f/2 ASPH. – and will be strictly limited to 333 units globally.
With the Leica M-P ‘TITANIUM’ Set, the top plate, base plate and control elements of the camera are precision machined from solid titanium. This resilient, hard-wearing material reinforces the robust nature of the M camera and makes it approximately 90 grams lighter than the standard production model. Other distinguishing features include the classic Leica script engraved on the top plate, and a special edition serial number on the accessory shoe, indicating the camera’s position in the series. Furthermore, the camera body is finished with an elegant, full grain leather trim, which also ensures an outstanding grip. A matching leather carrying strap is included in the set.
The anodised titanium finish of the aluminium lenses is perfectly matched to the camera, and the focusing scale distances and focal length engraving are highlighted in red. In addition, both lenses feature a special serial number: on the Summicron-M 28mm f/2 ASPH., this appears on the front element retaining ring, and on the APO-Summicron-M 50mm f/2 ASPH., it is engraved on the bayonet ring.
In all other respects, the technical specifications and performance of the camera and lenses are identical to those of the serial production products. The Leica M-P offers all the technical benefits of the iconic Leica M digital rangefinder system cameras, which are renowned for their robust and enduring qualities.
With its compact size and exceptional performance, the fast Leica Summicron-M 28mm f/2 ASPH. is an ideal wide-angle lens for reportage photography. Its outstanding speed makes it particularly versatile, producing brilliant imaging results even in challenging lighting conditions.
The Leica APO-Summicron-M 50mm f/2 ASPH. offers the perfect combination of sophisticated design and precise construction, from its extraordinary optical properties to the meticulous manufacturing and finishing of the product, and is considered to be the reference lens among standard focal lengths, delivering unrivalled resolution and sharpness.
