The Leica Store in Oslo has announced a special edition Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) camera simply called the Oslo Edition. This model is offered exclusively by the Leica Store Oslo, and though it is available worldwide, the edition is limited to just 10 units—this might be your best chance to get an ultra-rare Leica at a not-totally-insane price.
Both the camera body and the lens are engraved with the word ‘OSLO’ and a unit number ranging from 1 to 10. In addition to the special engraving and edition numbers, the Leica M Oslo Edition is shipped with a Leica Summaron-M 28mm F5.6 lens sporting a unique black finish.
The special edition is packed in a gift box containing the lens, a battery, battery charger, and a Certificate of Authenticity. The Oslo Edition is available to purchase now for Kr. 118,000 / $14,800 USD. In other words: approximately double the cost of the regular Leica M Monochrom Typ 246.
