Leica USA announced the Leica M-A “Titan” set, marking the sixth time Leica has released a limited edition camera with a titanium exterior. Distinguished by a look that is as elegant as it is exclusive, this set combines the appeal of the analog Leica M-A 35mm film camera with the classic design of the APO-Summicron-M 50 f/2 ASPH. lens, the company says.
Key components of the camera and lens are milled from solid titanium imbuing the camera and lens with even greater resilience and longevity, as well as a unique appearance that is impossible to achieve with any other material.
The design of the special edition is enhanced by the classic ‘Ernst Leitz Wetzlar’ script on the top plate. The set includes the APO-Summicron-M 50 f/2 ASPH. lens whose external components are also made of titanium. This acclaimed lens is modeled after the very first 50mm Summicron-M lens introduced in 1956 and is complete with its round titanium lens hood. The set comes in a singular presentation box with an inner lining of black silk.
