Leica has announced the new D-Lux Typ 109 ‘Explorer Kit’ bundle ahead of its launch in mid-November. This bundle includes the Leica D-Lux Typ 109 camera, an exclusive red cotton strap, and an auto lens cap that doesn’t need to be removed when powering the camera on, taking photos, or powering the camera off.
The Explorer Kit’s D-Lux Typ 109 camera features the Leica DC Vario-Summilux 24-75mm equivalent F1.7–2.8 ASPH lens, and is ‘technically identical’ to the standard D-Lux camera ‘in every way,’ according to Leica (as well as the Panasonic LX100, probably). The D-Lux Typ 109 Explorer Kit is available to pre-order from Leica’s website for $1145. When purchased seperately, the camera and auto lens cap are priced at $1095 and $59 respectively.
