All metal parts are made in titanium, a particularly light but extremely strong and durable material. Scratch-resistant, sapphire-crystal glass is employed as a protective over for the camera monitor; the camera’s trim, which uses leather typically reserved for the interiors of Audi’s premium automobiles, provides outstanding grip and fits perfectly with the titanium surface. Walter de’Silva addressed not only the design of the camera, also added new features such as LED illumination of the bright-line frames in the viewfinder, making the front aspect of the camera more balanced.
The model is to be used with Leica Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH. lens, also features a new design concept – the essential elements, all in titanium, harmonise perfectly with the style of the camera. Its round, screw mount lens hood is constructed with four slits to prevent obstruction of view through the finder. The model comes with its specially designed shoulder holster and carrying strap, perfect for shooting outdoor.
