To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Leica Oskar Barnack Award, Leica Camera is releasing a special M10-P “Reporter” camera in a limited edition of 450 units worldwide.

Technically identical to the existing Leica M10-P, the new Leica M10-P “Reporter” features a dark green, particularly scratch-resistant finish and Kevlar camera trim, which can withstand extreme conditions. Through exposure to natural UV rays, the camera’s body armour will gradually turn the same colour as its top and base plate. The armour’s diamond-weave texture makes the Leica M10-P “Reporter” especially grippy and comfortable to hold. All of the camera’s engravings are inlaid in light green, resulting in a more discreet effect than the white
inlays customarily used on black-finish cameras. The Leica M10-P “Reporter” is available at Leica stores and specialist retailers as of now for an RRP of AU$12,700 (body only). A total of 450 units of the Leica M10-P “Reporter” will be available worldwide.
