International premium camera manufacturer, Leica, has just released the limited edition Leica M-A “Titan” Set, which marks the sixth time the company has released a limited edition with a titanium exterior – thereby continuing a tradition that first started with the Leica M6 TTL “Titanium” in 2001. The Leica M-A “Titan” Set includes the Leica M-A mechanical camera. As a purely mechanical 35mm film camera, the Leica M-A relies neither on batteries nor data connections. This classically-inspired camera boasts the iconic ‘Ernst Leitz Wetzlar’ script on the top plate.
The set also includes the legendary APO-Summicron-M 50 f/2 ASPH lens whose external components are also made of titanium. This acclaimed lens, which represents the pinnacle of full-frame lens design, has an appearance that is modeled after the very first 50mm Summicron-M lens introduced in 1956 and is complete with its round titanium lens hood. Both the camera and lens feature engravings with their respective special-edition serial numbers. The Leica M-A “Titan” Set arrives in a black silk-lined special presentation box and is now available at Leica retail stores.
