Distinguished by a look that is as elegant as it is exclusive, the set combines the timeless appeal of the analogue Leica M-A with the classic design of the APO-Summicron-M 50 f/2 ASPH. To create this high-end ensemble, key components of the camera and lens are milled from solid titanium – a material known for its exceptional resilience and durability. This imbues the camera and lens with an even greater solidity, as well as a unique appearance that is impossible to achieve with any other material.
PURE MECHANICAL EXCELLENCE
As a purely mechanical camera, the Leica M-A is a precision instrument that has been so dramatically reduced to the essentials that it opens up entirely new creative horizons for photographers. It may have no monitor, no exposure meter, and no battery, but what it does have is a mechanical quality that makes Leica’s 100 years of experience instantly tangible. Photographers can read the shutter speed and aperture directly from the camera and lens and so concentrate fully on their subject. The acoustic signature of the shutter release of a Leica M-A is a delight that immediately reveals the precision-engineered excellence of its origin.
SETTING THE BENCHMARK IN SHARPNESS
The Leica M-A “Titan” Set is rounded off perfectly through the addition of the Leica APO-Summicron-M 50 f/2 ASPH. Its external components are also made of titanium creating one, complete ‘look’. And with it a special edition that is both exclusive and elegant. Its classic shape was modelled on the first, 1956 Summicron with a 50 mm focal length, which includes the lens hood also made of titanium. Regarded to be the most technically advanced of its type, the APO-Summicron-M 50 f/2 ASPH. literally pushes boundaries: Redefining image sharpness for clarity that extends to every corner.
