For Hardcore Leica Fans, The Centenial Edition

Centennial Edition Leica M Edition 100

Hardcore Leica fans would know that it is celebrating 100th anni this year.

To commemorate a Century of photographic excellence the camera company has announced 2 special editions: the Leica S Edition 100 and the Leica D-Lux 6 Edition 100.

Even though the 2 special edition cameras are without a doubt spectacular, a centennial celebration calls for something truly unique, wouldn’t you say?

Which is where the M Edition 100 comes into the frame.

Presented during the official opening celebration for the new company headquarters in the Leitz Parkcomplex in Wetzlar in May, the M Edition 100 is the 1st  special edition of its kind.

Strictly limited to only 101 sets, Leica M Edition 100 brings together the Leica M-A (a purely mechanical rangefinder camera for film photography), with the Leica M Monochrom (a digital Leica M).

Both the Leica cameras and lenses in the set are made from solid stainless steel.

This is the 1st time that stainless steel, a material that is extremely difficult to work with has been employed for the visible metallic elements of Leica products.

A special protective coating applied by a Swiss company protects the exposed surfaces against finger marks. The premium appearance of both camera bodies is further complemented by the application of a special black leather trim.

Aside from the cameras, the set also includes 3 L Summilux-M lenses with focal lengths of 28, 35 and 50 mm.

The Leica M Edition 100 set will be packaged in a black anodized aluminium case constructed by Rimowa especially for limited edition. The interior of the case is subdivided into compartments that are precisely tailored to the individual components and is lined with black leather.

The set also includes Kodak TRI-X 400 Black-and-White film for use with the M-A camera

Stay tuned…
