The strictly limited LEICA M-P Edition ‘Safari’ is finished in olive green enamel. This unusual special finish has a long tradition at Leica. The first Leica cameras with this finish were originally designed and constructed for use in the field. Their reputation as robust and reliable tools under extreme conditions spread rapidly around the world. Today, this glorious heritage meets cutting-edge technology in an exciting symbiosis for lovers of Leica cameras – the breathtaking LEICA M-P Edition ‘Safari’.
Constructed for artists and a work of art in itself. Perfection in every detail bears witness to the superior construction and finishing of the LEICA M-P Edition ‘Safari’. All visible metallic components of the camera and lens are elaborately machined from solid brass. The premium stove enamel finish in olive green makes the LEICA M-P Edition ‘Safari’ resistant to finger marks and scratches and withstands external influences like solvents, chemicals and UV light.
Originally designed for use in the field, Leicas in olive green occupy a special place in a history that is steeped in tradition. Today, the tradition is seamlessly perpetuated by a special model of the Leica M-P camera, the LEICA M-P Edition ‘Safari’. This also explains why there is no Leica red dot logo on the front. Instead, the famous classical Leica script engraved on the top plate of the camera immediately catches the eye.
The premium-quality LEICA M-P Edition ‘Safari’ set includes an equally exceptional lens – a Summicron-M 35 mm f/2 ASPH. It excels with superior sharpness, exceptional contrast, outstanding resolution and almost absolute freedom from distortion. Its compact size makes the LEICA M-P Edition ‘Safari’ an unobtrusive and discreet companion. What’s more, its elegant silver chrome finish captures not only key moments in time, but also admiring glances. A classical round metal lens hood also forms part of the set.
The exclusive LEICA M-P Edition ‘Safari’ set is impressive on account of its high quality and painstaking attention to detail. The camera’s carrying strap and the case for SD memory cards and credit cards are crafted from genuine cowhide. The refined and elegant appearance of these premium leather accessories harmonises perfectly with the olive green of the LEICA M-P Edition ‘Safari’.
