Marc Newson and Jony Ive Design Leica M for (RED)

In making a contribution to The Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis & Malaria, designer Marc Newson and Apple‘s Jony Ive have collaborated on a special (RED) edition of the Leica M to be auctioned off at Sotheby’s. Featuring the likes of a full-format CMOS sensor, high performance processor and Leica APO-Summicron M 50mm f/2 ASPH lens, the (RED) camera is the culmination of 2,149 hours of work by 55 engineers on nearly 1,000 prototype parts and, ultimately, 561 different models.
