The Leica M-P camera is already awesome, with a price tag fitting a camera of its caliber, but that didn’t stop Lenny Kravitz from collaborating with Leica to create his own version of the M-P called Correspondent. At a little over twenty-four thousand dollars (yes, you read that right), it’s not cheap. Actually, it’s downright expensive. That said, the Correspondent edition includes a Leica Summicron-M 35mm and Leica Summilux-M 50mm which is around $7k alone, on top of the $8k it costs for the camera itself. That extra $10k you’re shelling out for the Kravitz treatment gets you a distressed finish that reveals the brass on certain pieces, black snakeskin body trim, straps and case, and the entire shebang is limited to 125 pieces.
