M10-P (Safari Edition) +
Summicron-M 50mm f/2 (Safari Edition)
Limited Edition Olive Full-frame Digital Rangefinder Camera Body & Limited Edition Olive Standard-Length Prime Lens Kit
Here in this kit, the limited 'Safari' edition M10-P is duly paired with the limited 'Safari' edition Summicron-M 50mm f/2 for a complete safari look.
The M10-P Safari Edition from Leica is both reminicent Leica's iconic first olive-coloured Leica, the classic Leica M1 Olive from 1960, and reflective of Leica's contempory imaging capabilities. Part of a limited edition of 1500 units, this camera also comes with a brandy-coloured leather strap and a SD/credit card case.
The olive Leica M10-P is a sleek and minimalisitc digital rangefinder camera that features enhanced still imaging capabilities as well as the quietest shutter of any film or digital M-series camera. The pairing of a redeveloped 24MP full-frame CMOS sensor and Maestro II image processor enables the M10-P to capture high-resolution imagery with an extended dynamic range to a high sensitivity of ISO 50000, and a continuous shooting rate of 5 fps.
Sharing the same slim body profile as its sibling model--the M10, the M10-P features a larger 0.73x-magnification optical viewfinder which allows greater ease and accuracy in composition and focusing. For achieving those perfectly level horizons, a level gauge is built in to aid. A dedicated ISO dial is incorporated for fast adjustment whether the camera is turned on or off and the rear 3.0" 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD features a Gorilla Glass cover to guard against scratching and light impacts. Built for long lasting use, the top and bottom plates of this sturdy camera are constructed from brass, while the chassis is built from magnesium alloy. In addition, an integrated Wi-Fi module in the M10-P enables wireless sharing and remote camera control from a linked mobile device.
Kitted together with the M10-P is the limited Safari Edition Summicron-M 50mm f/2, which is the first Leica lens to receive their distinct olive green enamel finish that is reminiscent of the Safari camera legacy. A high-speed prime that provides excellent image quality, the Summicron-M 50mm f/2 from Leica is a versatile manual focus normal-length lens. Its fast f/2 maximum aperture makes it well-suited to working in low-light conditions and with shallow depth of field techniques. The manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 70cm away with a maximum reproduction ratio of 1:11.5.
The six elements, four groups optical design ensures consistently bright and sharp images and helps to virtually eliminate distortion. This is complimented by a compact design that includes a built-in expandable lens hood to prevent lens flare and ghosting.
The Leica Summicron-M 50mm f/2 'Safari' Edition Lens comes with a Lens Cap, Rear Lens Cap, and Leather Lens Case.
