Here are the new goodies.
Well it’s Photokina time so here is a look at the new products that would interest the Leica street shooter.
The cameras left to right are the Leica M-A, Leica M Edition 60, and the Leica M-P. The Leica M Edition 60 is strictly a collector camera that does away with the LCD for reviewing the images. In place of the LCD is the old style wheel for setting the ISO. With only 600 made worldwide there is no reason to consider it as a shooter. It will sell for $20,000. The Leica M-A is a film camera that has dropped the light meter, and battery. It has no electronics at all. The MP which is the current film camera will remain in the line up. It will sell for $4750. The Leica M-P was released recently and was no surprise. It will sell for $7950.
The Noctilux-M ASPH 0.95 and Summilux-M 35mm ASPH 1.4 have been given the silver treatment and will sell for $11,350 and $5,450 respectively.
The entire Summarit line has had it’s optics updated. The Summarit-M 35mm 2.4 ASPH is $2250, Summarit-M 50mm 2.4 is $1950, Summarit-M75mm 2.4 is $2150, and the Summarit-M 90mm 2.4 is 2350. The Summarits are really nice lenses that are small and really sharp.
