Leica has a history of releasing limited-edition titanium versions of its cameras, dating back to the Leica M6 TTL "Titanium" in 2001. The M-A Titan is the sixth such release. Key parts of the camera and its accompanying lens are milled from pure titanium, giving it a unique look and added stability. The lens, an APO-Summicron-M 50 f/2 ASPH, is modeled after the first 50mm Summicron-M from 1956, while the camera lacks the Red Dot and instead has heritage "Ernst Leitz Wetzlar" script on the top plate. The set arrives in a special presentation box and is limited to 250 individually-numbered examples.
