Leica's design ethos is one of tasteful restraint; Paul Smith's is one of colorful exuberance. For the Leica CL Edition Paul Smith, they've blended them. While the grip of the 24-megapixel APS-C shooter remains black, the top plate is rendered in a bright blue, while the base has Smith's signature stripes. A sketch of an eye, created by Smith, sits above the viewfinder, and the words "look and see" appear in his handwriting above the display. The camera ships in a presentation box with a co-branded neon rope strap, a custom dust cloth featuring a print of Smith's vintage cameras, and an Elmarit-TL 18 mm f/2.8 lens.
