This is the second special edition created in collaboration between the two long-established companies and is limited to 250 sets worldwide.
Founded a century ago, Zagato has created some of the most beautiful coach built bodies in the history of automobile construction, incorporating the innovative uses of aluminum. Today, the company continues to create special and strictly limited, editions of cars with unique styling in Milan – the city where their storied success began with founder Ugo Zagato in 1919.
The Leica M10 “Edition Zagato” is the first special edition of the Leica M10 camera, and offers extraordinary visual and tactile highlights, designed by Dr. Zagato himself. The top deck, baseplate, outer casing and control elements of the camera are all manufactured from the signature Zagato material: aluminum. This makes it 70 grams lighter than the standard M10 camera. Instead of the usual leather trim, the body of the camera is finished with precisely cut fine grooves, which, together with accents like the red shutter release button, lend the camera its one-of-a-kind look and feel. The elegant curves of the integrated handgrip at the left of the body further distinguish the special edition from the serial production model of the M10, and adds a new dimension of comfort and handling. The M10 “Edition Zagato” is the first Leica camera to have its own special serial number engraved on an aluminum badge on the base of the camera that is revealed only when the baseplate is opened.
Perfectly matched with this exquisite camera and completing the special edition set is a uniquely designed Leica Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. lens, which has an integrated hood that can be pulled out and locked in place in a single motion – a new feature for a Leica 35 mm lens that streamlines its handling. The design of the focus tab on the lens also pays homage to an iconic styling signature of Zagato automobile design – the double-bubble roofline of many Zagato cars. The distinct “Zagato” logotype lining the lens ring highlights the role of the prominent design partner in this collaboration.
The technical specifications of the camera and lens in the Leica M10 “Edition Zagato“ set are identical to those of the standard production model. The set also includes a bright and bold red carrying strap in full-grain leather embossed with the Zagato logotype. This M-Camera is the first to feature rectangular strap lugs in the same design as those adorned on the flanks of the Zagato binoculars. The certificate of authenticity of the set, an aluminum plate with an engraved serial number is included in the packaging.
Accompanying the launch of the Leica M10 “Edition Zagato” is the publication of the second volume of the coffee-table book trilogy, “Leica and Zagato – Europe Collectibles.” This beautiful photo book showcases 33 Zagato models spanning the entire history of the brand against the backdrop of beautiful Southern European settings. Each set will also include a ‘Leica and Zagato - Europe Collectibles’ book.
The owner of this camera will receive the 90-day license version of the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan (which includes the latest versions of Adobe Lightroom CC, Adobe Photoshop CC, Photoshop Fix App, Lightroom Mobile App, and other Adobe Apps and Services). The Creative Cloud Photography Plan can be activated upon product registration in the Leica Owners' Area.
