Leica has officially unveiled its special edition M Typ 262 with a red-anodized finish.
As is obvious, the unique feature of this camera edition is its colour scheme. The top plate and the baseplate of the Leica M (Typ 262) are machined from solid aluminium and anodized in red. This lends the camera a unique look that perfectly matches the colour of the special edition of the Leica Summicron-M 50 mm f/2 ASPH. lens released in 2016.
The exclusiveness of this striking edition is further underlined by the strictly limited number of examples: As was the case with the lens, the Leica M (Typ 262) ‘red anodized finish’ edition is also strictly limited to 100 examples of the camera for the world market, each with a unique serial number. The Leica M (Typ 262) ‘red anodized finish’ is available from today.
The technical specifications of the special edition camera are identical to those of the serial production model of the Leica M (Typ 262).
Availability can be found at Leica stores and boutiques, for the price of $6,995 USD.
