Olive paint with silver accents is a distinctive and historically significant look for the Leica M. With no more than 1500 sets made world wide the Leica M-P Safari set with 35mm Summicron ASPH is a significant modern reincarnation of a classic M Safari camera aesthetic.
There is more to the M-P Safari than meets the eye initially. First, the M-P Safari has the original M-P Typ 240 chassis and technology. The M-P Safari comes with a cognac leather strap and SD card holder which are unique to this set. The 35mm Summicron ASPH that comes included with the safari includes a silver metal vented hood, instead of the plastic snap on hood that normal would be included. The best aspect of the M-P Safari set is that you get an M-P and a 35mm Summicron for $9990. That is almost $1000 less than if your where to purchase an M-P and 35 Summicron ASPH in silver separately!
Since the majority of existing M shooters already have a 35mm Summicron, or a lens adjacent we decided to offer the Safari sets in two other forms. The first set we will offer is with the Leica 50mm Noctilux in silver and the M-P Safari. This set will cost $17888.
The Second set we will offer is the M-P Safari combined with the 35mm Summilux ASPH in silver. This set will run $12696.
In order to offer you these combinations we will exchange the included 35mm Summicron ASPH that is included with the original M-P Safari set and replace it with the 50mm Noctilux or 35mm Summilux at the 12% discounted price.
Take advantage of these Safari Sets while you can. The Safari cameras have historically retained and even exceeded their original resale value better than their normal counterparts, and the M-P safari is no exception. Many of the M-P Safari’s have been sold, and stock is limited.
