Leica celebrates the 60th anniversary of the birth of their now-legendary Leica rangerfinder system with a special, limited edition Leica M Edition 60. First introduced in 1954 with the M3, this model introduced to the world the now-fundamental components of the M-System, including the mechanical precision and intense focus needed to take one's photography to the next level. Now, 60 years later, technical innovation combines with an undeniably strong pedigree to make a camera with a classic look and powerful functionality. Running in contrast to recent design changes, this new model features no screen at all, which the brand purposefully did to demand a level of care and attention that analogue models required. In fact, only the sensor and the electronics system reflects the latest in state-of-the-art camera technology, removing the distraction of technical features that sometimes prevent photographers from snapping the best shot at just the right moment. No price details have been announced yet, but there will only be 600 units made world-wide. The camera will be packaged with a Summilux 35mm f/1.4 lens for €15,000 EUR (about $19,500 USD) beginning in October.
