Leica introduces a new special edition of its Leica M10-P camera body, along with the Leica Summicron-M 50 mm f/2 lens. The new Safari aesthetic is fashionable and fun, a throwback to vintage safari style.


The olive green-hued camera comes with a carrying strap and SD cardholder in brandy-colored leather. It’s the first time in Leica’s history a Leica M-Lens is offered in the Safari olive green finish.


The Leica M10-P series has a super quiet shutter and the pesky red dot on the front of most cameras is removed for additional stealth. This is truly a great camera if you’re looking to photograph in the wild, as it allows you to go unseen and unheard, as far as your tech goes. Still, with these added features, the camera does not reduce any of its quality, producing crisp, clean images every time. Because of this, the M10-P series is beloved by celebrity photographers shooting in the field, from a far-flung destination to a stateside concert.


The M10-P series also offers new display touch functionality, with Live View and Playback modes, as well as an integrated digital level gauge to reduce corrections in post.


To ensure your safari-ready camera stays safe, Leica also offers a range of cases and carriers, neck and wrist straps and tripods.


Leica is only producing 1,500 of the Safari aesthetic camera bodies and only 500 lenses. Both hit shelves in February.
