Leica M10-P Edition “Safari”

On Thursday Leica Camera launched a sweet combo for professional and amateur photographers alike: the limited edition Leica M10-P Edition "Safari” camera and its potential partner in crime, the Summicron-M 50 mm f/2 Edition "Safari" lens. 

They come in new olive green colorways, in keeping with the company's longstanding tradition of similarly-shaded releases.

Beneath its finish, the Safari has the same abilities as the standard-issue Leica M10-P, the camera-maker's standard whispery mechanical shutter included. 

Unfortunately, the Summicron-M 50 mm f/2 lens doesn't come as a package deal with the camera—it's sold separately, though it's also the most obvious candidate to pair with the M10-P. This does mark the first time ever that the camera maker has offered an M-Lens in olive.

The Safari comes with a rich brandy-colored leather matching strap and a matching case with room for SD memory cards as well as a credit card.

If you want one of these beauties, don't wait. Both are to be sold separately at Leica stores and dealers. 

The Leica M10-P Edition Safari camera body is available now for $8,450, but there are just 1,500 units. The Summicron-M 50 goes on sale February 15 for $2,750 and there will only be 500 available.
