New Leica M-Sets offer the perfect introduction to rangefinder photography
Photographers can choose their own, ideal M-System from a multitude of camera and lens combinations for their preferred camera kit with special pricing incentives
February 9, 2017 – Like no other camera, the Leica M stands for a special kind of photography – discreet, close to the action and focused on the essentials. In addition to the existing pre-set bundles with the Leica M (Typ 262) and M7 cameras, Leica now presents a new range of configurable camera and lens sets featuring the Leica M (Typ 240), M-P (Typ 240) and M Monochrom (Typ 246) models that offer customers the opportunity to experience Leica M-Photography at new and advantageous prices.
Now available for a limited time is a special sales offer that enables customers to create their own, personal M-System from a multitude of different camera models and lenses. Customers can choose from the following camera models: the Leica M (Typ 240), featuring a high-resolution, full-frame 24MP CMOS sensor, Live View and full-HD video, the Leica M-P (Typ 240) with a sapphire glass monitor cover, frame selector and 2GB buffer memory and the Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) with a black-and-white full-frame 24MP CMOS sensor. Each of these cameras can be combined with nearly any Leica M-Lens from the current portfolio – a total of 19 M-Lenses – to create a customized set. An overview of the available configurations can be viewed at us.leica-camera.com and consumers can visit their local Leica Store, Boutique, or Dealer to configure their Leica M-Set of choice.
The already existing range of pre-set bundles includes entry-level options with the Leica M (Typ 262), an M-Model that forgoes Live View and video capability to concentrate on the core functions essential to photography. These sets are offered in three different versions: with a Summarit-M 35 mm f/2.4 ASPH. or Summarit-M 50 mm f/2.4, or with two lenses, a Summarit-M 35 mm f/2.4 ASPH. and a Summarit-M 75 mm f/2.4 ASPH. Each of the three bundles also includes a Leica SF 40 flash unit and a robust, water-repellent ‘The Bowery for Leica’ canvas bag made by ONA.
Leica has also not forgotten the lovers of classic, analog photography – the Leica M7 analog camera in black chrome finish is also available in a bundle together with a Leica Summicron-M 50 mm f/2 high-performance lens.
