Leica M Monochrom “Stealth Edition” (Monochrom 246 & Summicron M 35mm)



Leica Camera is pleased to present the Leica M Monochrom “Stealth Edition” designed by Marcus
Wainwright, founder and owner of the acclaimed fashion label “rag & bone”. Wainwright, a
dedicated Leica photographer shoots with various Leica cameras, often in black and white using his
M6. The Leica M Monochrom “Stealth Edition” consists of a M Monochrom (Typ 246) and
Summicron-M 35 mm.
This special edition set is limited to 125 units and will be sold through Leica Stores and Boutiques.
The technical features of the Monochrom camera and 35 mm Summicron lens are identical to the regular production units.

Marcus Wainright’s design concept is the individual perfection of existing icons. With the Leica M
Monochrom “Stealth Edition”, this means taking the discreet unobtrusiveness of the camera to the
extreme. A special scratch-resistant, matte paint is used to make the surface finish as black as possible
while the camera’s leather trim in jet-black is made from an extremely smooth full-grain cowhide that
offers excellent grip.
The camera has a striking visual as the important engravings on the camera and lens are intentionally
highlighted with a special fluorescent paint that glows in the dark. This allows faster setting of the
aperture or focusing of the lens in low-light situations.
The lens included in the set has the classic street photographer’s focal length of 35 mm and is finished
with the same special paint as the camera body - a striking yet subtle matte black. The set includes a
comfortable black fabric carrying strap, a metal front cap for the lens, and a certificate of authenticity
