The Leica X2 Edition Paul Smith

Leica Camera AG has revealed a new special edition in the Leica X range: the Leica X2 Edition Paul Smith. The camera is finished in British Racing Green, capped with a luminescent orange top and what Leica calls an "eye-catching brilliant yellow" base.

The special edition package includes a carrying strap and a camera protector in taupe-coloured premium calfskin, a lens cleaning cloth labelled 'Paul Smith for Leica' and a certificate of authenticity. Only 1,500 of the Paul Smith editions will be made. Scheduled to be available in the UK at a suggested retail price of £2,000 in October 2012 from the Leica Store Mayfair.
