There are few things that go together as effortlessly as Leica and reportage. Over the company’s 100-plus-year tenure, its cameras have been used to document some of history’s most important happenings, and now, the brand is honoring that lineage with the upcoming M10-P “Reporter.”
The Leica M10-P “Reporter” arrives as a striking rendition of the company’s flagship rangefinder, boasting the same sleek profile, ultra-quiet shutter, and touch functionality of its predecessor. This time, however, the camera departs from the brand’s traditional black/red colorway for a more utilitarian gunmetal visage, honoring the 40th anniversary of Leica’s Oskar Barnack Award. Connoisseurs of the brand will also realize that this unique model lacks the outfit’s trademark “red dot,” opting instead for a more refined (and unassuming) design. While pricing has yet to be revealed for the Reporter, the edition will be limited to only 450 pieces, worldwide, making it an attractive item for collectors. Look for the camera to launch in January of 2021.
