To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus school of art and design in Germany, Leica has released a special edition version of its Leica CL camera system, complete with a matching Elmarit-TL 18mm F2.8 lens and carrying strap to complete the kit.
With the exception of two small visual changes, this special edition Leica CL remains nearly identical to its less-special counterpart, complete with a 24-megapixel sensor, 4K video and wireless connectivity. The two changes are the addition of a ‘Bauhaus’ logo embossed into the black leather wrap on the front of the camera and a notable change to the usually-red Leica nameplate on the front—it’s now black.
Leica describes the special edition as ‘an elegant, iconic piece of german product design, that exemplary obeys the principle of form follows function.’
Included with the camera in the special edition kit is a matching silver Elmarit-TL 18mm F2.8 lens and a black leather carrying strap that’s also embossed. The sets, of which only 150 will be produced, will be individually numbered and retail for $3,750 exclusively at Leica Stores and Boutiques.
