Leica just unveiled a titanium version of its M-P Typ 240 in honor of Leica Store Ginza’s 10-year anniversary, but now the German giant has introduced another version of the beloved digital rangefinder. Identical to the aforementioned Ginza release, but sans commemorative badging, the camera — which features all the same tech specs as the original M-P Typ 240, but weighs in at 90 grams less thanks to its titanium construction — comes packaged with matching titanium-constructed versions of Leica’s Summicron-M 28mm f/2 ASPH and APO-Summicron-M 50mm f/2 ASPH lenses.

The latest M-P Typ 240 may be a little easier to get your hands on than the Ginza edition (which is limited to just 50 pieces), but it’ll cost you: the entire package will retail for over $23,000 USD when it launches this October.
