The Leica M10-P Edition ‘Safari’ camera and the Leica Summicron-M 50 f/2 Edition ‘Safari’ premium lens, both finished in olive green enamel, represent a perfect symbiosis of functionality, legacy, and design. All visible metallic components of the camera and lens are elaborately machined from solid brass. The premium baked enamel finish in olive green makes the camera and lens resistant to handling blemishes and scratches and provides enduring protection against external influences such as chemicals and UV light.
The Leica M10-P Edition ‘Safari’ camera body will be limited to 1,500 units worldwide and includes a carrying strap and SD/credit card holder in Brandy-colored leather.
The Leica Summicron-M 50 mm f/2 Edition ‘Safari’ lens marks the very first time in Leica’s history that a Leica M-Lens will be offered in the legendary olive green enamel finish. Only 500 of these lenses will be made available. The ‘Safari’ bundle will be offered on an allocation basis.
The first Leica cameras with this high-quality enamel finish in olive green were originally designed and constructed for military use in the field. What began in 1960 with the Leica M1 “Olive” manufactured for the German armed forces went on to become a story of legends in the camera world. While the subsequent olive green M3 and M4 cameras were manufactured exclusively for military use, 1977 saw the appearance of the olive green Leica R3 ‘Safari’ camera in response to increasing demand from private customers.
This special edition was followed by a series of popular successors: the M6 TTL ‘Safari’ in 2000, the M8.2 ‘Safari’ in 2008 and, in 2015, the M-P (Typ 240) ‘Safari’.
With the M10-P, Leica debuts a touch-function for the M-System, enabling faster checking of focus in Live-View and Playback modes and convenient contemporary touchscreen
controls such as swiping and pinch-to-zoom. The M10-P further assists photographers in capturing a perfectly framed and level shot, thanks to its built-in Level Gauge. This time-saving feature helps photographers get their perfect shot, right at the press of the shutter. All other features, functions, build quality and finishing of the Leica M10-P match the same high standards of its sibling model, the Leica M10. Rounding out that high-level design, the M10-P also comes with a color-matched metal hot shoe cover, giving the top plate a seamless look and sleek style. Compact, pared down and discrete, the M10-P’s design perfectly reflects the ethos of M cameras: provide photographers the right tools to unobtrusively capture important moments from the rich tapestry of life.
