In 2012, Leica Camera released the Leica M9-P White Edition Set. Limited to 50 pieces, the set was only sold in Japan and never officially exported to other markets. But now, you have a chance to grab the 23rd edition of the original run, because Leica Store Miami is now selling it for $49,995. Included in the set is a Leica M9-P in silver chrome with white leather and a white script engraving on the top plate, a silver chrome Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH (not to be confused with the currently sold silver anodized version, the silver chrome lens in this set is made from brass), a white leather lens pouch and a white leather neck strap.
The combination of the silver chrome camera and lens is stunning in person, and the white leather with white engraving adds an additional “wow” factor. The camera’s body cap, lens front cap and rear cap are also all in metal to match the camera and lens.
This is the only way to secure an M9-P in white leather, and one of the only ways to have a Noctilux in true silver chrome with brass construction, unlike the silver anodized version currently produced which is aluminum.
This particular set comes with a matching spare metal lens cap for the Noctilux that is brand new, because one cap has a small nick in the finish.
Set includes: M9-P camera, metal body cap, Noctilux lens, silver front (with a brand new second spare cap) and rear lens caps, white leather lens case, white leather neck strap, Leica battery, battery charger with US, EU and DC cables, USB cable, instruction manuals, test certificates, warranty cards, Leica certificate of authenticity, and original box with packaging.
