In The Style Of A Supercar
Leica M10 Edition Zagato

Leica has teamed up with coachbuilding company Zagato to launch its latest limited-edition camera. The exclusive Leica M10 Edition Zagato is the first special edition Leica M10 and was personally designed by Andrea Zagato, the Italian company’s current CEO and the grandson of founder Ugo Zagato.

The M10 Edition Zagato is mainly crafted in aluminium, including top deck, baseplate, and outer casing, reflecting the use of aluminium in Zagato’s finely built cars. Instead of the usual leather trim on the camera, the aluminium body shell is decorated with milled grooves that not only look elegant but also improve grip. These changes shave 70g off the standard M10, making the special edition weigh in at just 590g. The iconic red logo of the company has been changed to grey, and the only spot of colour on the nearly monochromatic camera is the red shutter button at the top. The Edition Zagato has an aluminium badge on the base of the camera engraved with its serial number,  which is revealed only when the baseplate is opened and is an innovation for Leica.

The camera is paired with a Leica Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH lens. The integrated hood on the lens can be pulled out and locked in place in a single motion for streamlined handling. This new feature was inspired by the signature double-bubble roofline of Zagato cars. The lens ring is lined with “Zagato” to mark the collaboration.

The technical specifications of the camera and the lens are the same as the standard model. Limited to 250 sets worldwide, each set also comes with a red leather camera strap and a copy of the Leica and Zagato – Europe Collectibles coffee table book.
