In early 2016 Leica unveiled the world's first ever full matte brass finish M limited edition camera kit created especially for The Hour Glass in Singapore (I missed to report that announcement here on the blog). The kit includes a brass Leica Summicron-M 1:2/35mm ASPH lens. Only 35 pieces will be produced worldwide. The price is/was $35,000 (all sold out already).

    wow, that’s…um….

  • beach

    Why do they even bother making the camera and lens fully functional? Not likely that the combo will ever be used to actually make an image with it…

  • TO-DOUG

    This might seem expensive, frivolous and possibly bizarre to the ignorant, but clearly this Leica Brass Edition provides a major advantage to busy and possibly camera-abusive photographers: no visible brassing! [sarcasm alert]

  • thats actually funny, imagine you walk around the streets, dazed from the sun reflect of the golden cron and a really fancy person with leopard coat is shooting the scenery. 😀
    awesome! hahahaha
    but 35 people on this planet ownes it!!!! and probably using it…. hard to believe!

  • TwoStrayCats

    I wonder if one of the Trumps owns one?

    • Boris but No Johnson

      Matte finish is bad, bad, really bad, nasty. Trumpsters need it yuge, bigly, flashy, shiny, reflective, beautifully gold-plated.

    Honestly, this makes me never want to buy a Leica again. Ugly. Gaudy. Tacky. I am out. Hasselblad would never do this.

  • Jukeboxjohnnie

    Like it! Surprised we don’t have more brass cameras all the look of gold editions without worrying about gold plate coming off with handling

  • looks like a Kim Kardashian edition: my name is bling, bling-bling…..

  • Les

    I like it. It reminds me of nautical equipment. I’m sure that people with 8-bit displays will confuse the brass with gold, but it doesn’t look like gold on my display.

    I agree with others that the music in the promo video is “Ugly. Gaudy. Tacky.” What were they thinking? Did they click on a pop-up for “top quality royalty-free music?”

    • Thiseas

      Yep! Wouldnt be that bad with a different leather or vulcanite.

      We can repeat: BRASS is NOT GOLD, it does not look tacky, it looks like vintage nautical equipment.

  • Licheus

    I love my brassed BP M7, but the exposed part stinks. Bet this one will smell like hell…

    • Boris but No Johnson

      I love the smell but it makes you smell like it as well even if you’ve handle it for just a short while.

  • raziel28

    Another “status symbol” camera…

  • Ryan

    So tacky

  • CHD

    Hey look….another discrete Leica so you can catch that decisive moment…

  • Rotating Beater Shaft

    Really wish they’d make journalists’ tools with pride, instead of making cosplay accessories for dentists, Chinese new money, and midlife crisis-ers who want to play photojournalist.

    This is just gross.
