NEW LEICA M MONOCHROM SIGNATURE: Introducing the Leica M Monochrom “Signature”

Oct 9, 2019  By Richard Rejino

A flawless union of supreme craftsmanship, rock & roll and photography comes to life with Leica’s latest limited edition camera. Created in collaboration with Andy Summers, a former member of the rock band The Police, the LEICA M MONOCHROM “Signature” represents a striking synergy of music and photography.

Mirroring Leica’s dedication to unparalleled craftsmanship, Fender will launch a special Signature Guitar coinciding with the special edition camera.

The photo collage that appears on both the camera and Fender guitar highlights stunning photographs from Summers’s collection. The camera features a glossy finish, silver chrome operational elements and a gorgeous red line engraving of Summers’s signature.

The set is complete with a Leica Summicron-M f/2 35mm ASPH. lens adorned with a vintage round lens hood, a Fender guitar-inspired camera strap and an OBERWERTH leather black system bag. The set is available at Leica stores and boutiques beginning today and is priced at $14,995.00.
