Have Rs. 13 Lakhs to Spare? Leica Has an Offer for You
In 2012, Leica turned to the past and released the Leica M Monochrom… a digital camera that shoots only black and white images. Not only that, the digital rangefinder camera does not have autofocus or auto aperture. What made the camera unique is in what it lacks—a colour filter array. Without one, the sensor becomes more sensitive to light and the images captured are much sharper. Wealthy niche photographers all over the world rejoiced, seeing the body only price tag of USD 8000 (approx. Rs. 4,70,600).
And now, the legendary company has teemed up with Nordic Foto Imports to celebrate the latter’s 25th anniversary by bringing out a special edition version of the Leica M Monochrom.
So, what’s new? Well, apart from external features and a new lens, not much. The special edition version features a tan wrap around, as opposed to the black one in the standard model. It also has a Summilux M 1.4/35mm lens and a matching tan leather strap.
If you’re in Denmark or Sweden anytime soon, you may want to check this camera out as it is not available anywhere else. Also, if you have USD 21,000 (approx. Rs. 13,00,000) to spare and really want to buy this camera, we suggest you do this soon. Only 25 of these special edition cameras have been manufactured.Tags: Leica, Leica M Monochrom, Leica M Monochrom special edition, leica news
