→ Leica produced one of a kind panoramic S2 body for Josef Koudelka:

I was using this Fuji panoramic — but the problem was everyone stopped developing the film. You can’t get 220 film anymore and you needed to carry about 35 kilograms extra. I went to Leica and they did one camera for me that was digital panoramic, which is this S2 camera, and they make two lines and set it on black and white. I made four trips with it together with the film camera. In the last two trips I realized I was taking more pictures with this Leica and I am enjoying it more. The result is very comparable. The lens was exactly the same.

→ A new Limited edition Leica Monochrom ‘Ralph Gibson’ camera announced (no photos available yet).
