Leica Camera is pleased to present the Leica M Monochrom “Stealth Edition” designed by Marcus Wainwright, founder and owner of the acclaimed fashion label “rag & bone”. Wainwright, a dedicated Leica photographer shoots with various Leica cameras, often in black and white using his M6. The Leica M Monochrom “Stealth Edition” consists of a M Monochrom (Typ 246) and Summicron-M 35 mm. This special edition set is limited to 125 units.
Marcus Wainright’s design concept is the individual perfection of existing icons. With the Leica M Monochrom “Stealth Edition”, this means taking the discreet unobtrusiveness of the camera to the extreme. A special scratch-resistant, matte paint is used to make the surface ﬁnish as black as possible while the camera’s leather trim in jet-black is made from an extremely smooth full-grain cowhide that offers excellent grip.
The camera has a striking visual as the important engravings on the camera and lens are intentionally highlighted with a special ﬂuorescent paint that glows in the dark. This allows faster setting of the aperture or focusing of the lens in low-light situations.
The lens included in the set has the classic street photographer’s focal length of 35 mm and is ﬁnished with the same special paint as the camera body - a striking yet subtle matte black. The set includes a comfortable black fabric carrying strap, a metal front cap for the lens, and a certiﬁcate of authenticity.
