Leica’s cams are pretty rare on their own – mostly thanks to the premium price tags attached to them – but Leica just put out a new cam that’ll separate you further from the already-exclusive crowd of Leica-rocking photographers. The company will be issuing an ultra-rare white edition of the M9-P digital rangefinder camera they released last year to commemorate the opening of their new facility in Tokyo. Exactly how rare does “ultra-rare” get? They’re only making 50 of these cams.
Spec-wise, the limited edition color variant is basically the same as the regular black M9-P, featuring an 18-megapixel full-frame 24x 36mm sensor and an interchangeable lens system packed into a compact body with an LCD screen protected by scratch-proof Sapphire crystal glass. This one undeniably looks more luscious though, with a white lacquer wash accented by white calf’s leather.
The exclusivity comes with a price, of course, and wow this one’s pricey. The limited edition M9-P will cost 2.62 million yen (around $31,700), or more than three times the $8,000 price of the regular M9-P. The kit includes a f/0.95 50mm lens.
