The curtains have been slid off the Leica X2 Paul Smith edition camera which has just joined the ‘Leica à la carte’ series. And here we thought the X2 couldn’t get any more expensive. Those who like their snappers to look as good as the photos they click, may want to take a closer glimpse of the new options.
With the fresh introduction, buyers will be able to pick from three body variants for the device. So apart from the regular black and silver builds, a titanium-hued, anodized coat is also on the cards. Stretching the personalization flexibility, the Leica camera’s leather trim may be opted for in any of the 10 offered choices. Bringing the ‘L’ to luxury, lizard leather patterns and the same in ostrich are part of the temptations.
Customers can also go with full-grain cowhide in colors such as aztec, green or blue, if not black saddle-leather. But the customization alternatives don’t stop at that – interested parties may even ask for the top deck or flash cover to be etched with a special engraving. Additionally, the company will toss in a matching camera protector and a carrying strap. As for what’s under the ‘skin,’ this particular X2’s specifications remain the same with the 16.5MP CMOS sensor, Leica Elmarit 24 mm f/2.8 ASPH. lens and so on.
The Leica X2 Paul Smith edition price isn’t clear as of now. Considering that the regular version is labeled at around £1,575, those who want to order the designer one can expect to lighten their wallet by a huge bit.
