Rolf Sachs Helps Design This Special Leica M-P Typ 240

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 ‘Grip’ 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?
