Leica M-P Typ 240

It seems Leica has asked the acclaimed German-born artist Rolf Sachs¬†to add his special touch to the fresh¬†Leica M-P Typ 240, and what resulted was a bespoke edition of this compact camera, that was dubbed as the Leica M-P “Grip”.

Technically,¬†we’re dealing with¬†the same Typ 240, which means a 24-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, the brand’s impressive¬†Maestro image processor and other features we already know and appreciate, but aesthetically,¬†the new ‚ÄėGrip‚Äô is a lot more appealing¬†thanks to Sachs, who looked towards¬†a red textured rubber, that’s frequently¬†used on the surface of table tennis bats.

The raised dots on the camera’s new body are¬†both visually pleasing¬†and¬†totally practical, in case, let’s say, it’s raining or it’s misty outside, and you’ll need a better grip for your camera.¬†As a result, we’re now dealing with yet another special¬†and very desirable¬†Leica camera.

Available in a limited edition run of just 79 pieces, this stylish camera is accompanied by¬†a black case, which houses the camera, the kit lens, a carrying strap and a Leica SF 40 flash – all for US$14,950.¬†We’re¬†not sure about the red though; I would have loved to see fluorescent green camera, that could possible glow in the dark.¬†Is that too much?
