The late great Jim Marshall is rightfully considered to be one of the most iconic rock photographers of all time — the Chicago native shot some of the most recognizable images of Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Led Zeppelin, and the Grateful Dead and was even employed by Woodstock to helm shooting duties at the festival. His weapon of choice? The Leica M Monochrom, which has been redone by the German company as a special tribute to Marshall. Simply dubbed the M Monochrom Jim Marshall Edition, the beautiful camera and included 50mm f1.4 ASPH lens come finished in brass while Marshall’s own signature is even etched into the top plate of the camera itself.
Limited to just 50 models (and packaged with an estate print of Thelonious Monk from 1964’s Monterey Jazz Festival, as well as a corresponding book), Marshall’s M Monochrom is available to pre-order online for $12,950 USD.
