The end of November will see the release of a solid grey version of the Leica D-Lux camera, which is currently offered only in black.

The new model will feature a grey-enamelled body with the lens and control elements picked out in silver. Otherwise, the technical specifications of the Leica D-Lux solid gray are identical to those of the standard model and virtually identical to those of the Panasonic LX100 upon which it is based. Key features include the fast, Leica DC Vario-Summilux 10.9″“34 mm f/1.7″“2.8 ASPH. lens, which is ideally matched to its large four-thirds sensor and covers focal lengths equivalent to 24-75mm in 35mm format. Support is also provided for 4K video recording and an integrated Wi-Fi module allows remote control of the camera from a smart device plus wireless transmission of still and moving picture data. The Leica Image Shuttle app required for this function can be downloaded free of charge and installed on iOS or Android devices.
Released concurrently with the new camera is a Leica CF D flash in silver finish and a specially made camera carrying strap colour-matched to the new styling concept. The local RRP for the new camera is AU$1550. For details of stockists visit http://en.leica-camera.com/Stores-Dealers/Leica-dealer-locator.
