product description

In honor of the 60th anniversary of Korea’s independence, Leica produced 60 limited-edition Leica MP ‘Ahn Jung-geun Cameras’, whose body was engraved with Ahn Jung-geun’s signature hand stamp and autograph of ‘Dae Han Guk In’ wordings. The Leica MP ‘Ahn Jung-geun Camera’ consists of chrome black Leica MP 0.72 body and Leica Summicron-M 35-mm f/2 ASPH lens. Compared to the original Leica MP body, the body of the Leica MP ‘Ahn Jung-geun Camera’ was made with Leica M7 chrome black style, forsaking the normal black paint of MP cameras, leading the colour of the body to be dim and making it more durable without fading. The lens with modern optical design of aspherical glass was made with the design of the antique Leica Summicron-M 35mm f/2 Ver.1 (Eight elements) to express respect to this classical and professional Leica lens. Moreover, as most of the classical Eight elements lens are in silver, the unique chrome black lens with bright red marked numbers increases the collectable value of the ‘Ahn Jung-geun Camera’.
