Leica M8 White Edition

The new LEICA M8 White Edition

Better late than never, so they say, Leica's PR company finally forwarded the details of the limited edition White M8.2. No word on quantities, but it's thought to be in the region of 250-275 units. Start saving.

Update 21/5/09: 275 units in total.

Leica UK press release

Following the success of the recent LEICA C-LUX 3 in white, Leica Camera decided to see what the LEICA M8 would look
like in white. They liked it, and have decided to launch a very limited run.

The camera will be finished in the smoothest white nappa cowhide and white lacquer, and with chrome controls and all the technical specifications of the renowned LEICA M8.2, Leica is expecting the camera to be in high demand when it’s released.

It will come as a complete package including a LEICA ELMARIT-M 28mm f/2.8 ASPH lens with “White Edition” silver anodized finish, and matching metal lens hood, a filter E39 UV/IR in silver, a genuine leather white carrying strap, a Certificate of Leica Authenticity and an individual engraved serial number on each camera.

Priced in the region of £5,990, and available in very limited quantities from premium Leica dealers soon. See www.leica-camera.co.uk


  1. Even if I had the money, I woudn't buy this camera in white. Some may like it on a sidewalk in North America or at private party. But not me for sure.
