This collector’s piece in the style of legendary reportage cameras, the Leica M-P ‘Correspondent’, was created in a collaboration with the artist Lenny Kravitz.
As every one of the 125 strictly limited Leica M-P ‘Correspondent’ sets is finished uniquely by hand, each has its own individual look.
In designing this new “Correspondent” Leica M-P, Kravitz wanted to bring back the aesthetics of his old beautifully aged Leica. The surface of the new camera and the two lenses have been artificially aged, entirely by hand, to suggest “many years of constant use.”
The camera may look weathered, but its materials are exotic. Durable snakeskin is used for the trim of the cameras and for the camera and wrist straps included in the package.
Each camera also comes with Summicron-M 35 mm f/2 ASPH and Summilux-M 50 mm f/1.4 ASPH lenses in a custom handmade case that’s also covered with snakeskin.
