Leica Special Edition M10-P Reporter

Jan 21, 2021  By Richard Rejino

The new special edition Leica M10-P “Reporter”, which marks the 40th anniversary of the Leica Oscar Barnack Award, is designed to be a reliable companion in even the toughest shooting conditions. Deeply rooted in the history of reportage photography and its most legendary cameras, the state-of-the-art “Reporter” features a top and base plate with an especially scratch-resistant, rugged dark green finish.

The camera’s ‘body armor’ trim is made of Kevlar fiber, offering both exceptional resilience and a high-grip texture. Under the influence of UV light, the armor will gradually develop the same color as the camera’s top and base plate. An unobtrusive appearance is particularly important when navigating conflict zones. With this in mind, all of the camera’s engravings have been inlaid with a discreet, yet easily legible, light-green paint.
A total of 450 units of the Leica M10-P “Reporter” will be available worldwide.

It really looks like the same green of the Safari but with black dials and front screw, aside from the Kevlar. Cool looking camera.

I agree it’s a great looking camera but I don’t understand why they are still producing special editions with the 24mp sensor.

just bought the reporter, the green is more gray army green not olive..doesn’t come with promotional strap…..pitty
