Germany’s most famous camera maker just opened its latest outpost in Singapore inside the Marina Bay Sands casino complex, unveiling an 18-piece M-P digital rangefinder for the occasion.
Unusual being entirely in silver chrome, thanks to a synthetic textured wrap in the same colour, the M-P Marina Bay Sands Edition is functionally identical to the standard M-P. An engraving of Singapore’s lion head emblem on the lens hood as well a the Marina Bay Sands towers silhouette on the body are two overt references to the city state that’s now home to four Leica stores, which also carry the shutter-dial Leica wristwatch made by Valbray.
The Singapore edition is packaged with a matching silver chrome Summilux-M 35mm lens, and priced at S$19,000 (equivalent to US$14,200).
The M-P Marina Bay Sands Edition is only available at the eponymous store, which also offers photography workshops and camera test-drive sessions (which require registration online). More information is available from Leica Singapore.Back to top.
