Leica cameras have typically been more on the expensive side as we have seen today, so it wouldn’t be surprising if the company were to release a special and limited edition version, it would be just as expensive, if not more. Well for those who love their Leica and want to add another to their collection, the company has revealed a Paul Smith edition of the Leica X2. It is essentially the X2 camera under the hood but has been designed by Paul Smith, giving the camera a slightly more fashion-forward and edgier look.
For those who aren’t familiar with the X2, it features an APS-C format CMOS image sensor at 16.5MP and is combined with a Leica Elmarit 24mm f/2.8 ASPH lens. The camera can be switched between automatic or manual controls, depending on which the photographer prefers just to name some of its features. So how much will this Leica X2 Edition Paul Smith cost you? According to the press release, it has been priced at £2000 (~$3,247) and is expected to be available for purchase in October. Oh and did we mention there are only going to be 1,500 units available worldwide?
