Distinguished by a look that is as elegant as it is exclusive, the set combines the timeless appeal of the analogue Leica M-A with the classic design of the APO-Summicron-M 50 f/2 ASPH lens. To create this high-end ensemble, key components of the camera and lens are milled from solid titanium, a material known for its exceptional resilience and durability. This imbues the camera and lens with an even greater solidity, as well as a unique appearance that is impossible to achieve with any other material.

As a purely mechanical camera, the Leica M-A relies neither on power nor data connections and represents the epitome of Leica’s philosophy to concentrate on the essentials for a return to photography in its purest form. The sophisticated design of the special edition is further enhanced by the classic ‘Ernst Leitz Wetzlar’ script on the top plate.

The set includes the APO-Summicron-M 50 f/2 ASPH lens, whose external components are also made of titanium for this special edition and whose appearance is modelled on the very first Summicron-M with a 50 mm focal length, introduced in 1956.
