Leica doesn’t have a whole lot to prove in the world of photography. They’ve been around for well over 100 years and are responsible for capturing some of the most iconic images ever taken. As result, they have a little room to play around, which is exactly what they did with the Leica M-P (Typ 240) ‘Grip’ edition.

The German camera manufacturer teamed up with artist Rolf Sachs and essentially let him have fun with redesigning the camera body. Sachs, an avid user of the camera said in a press release that he wanted to do something that was striking and different, yet at its core useful. His choice? Cover the body of the camera in the same rubberized material you find on ping pong paddles. Only 79 of these will be made, each of which will come with a Leica Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH lens (specially colored to complement the red rubber body), along with an SF 40 Flash. Prices are set sky high at $15,304. [Purchase]
