LEICA M Monochrom 0-series
Launched in 2012, the Leica M Monochrom (Order No. 10760) was the world's first digital camera to produce a pure black-and-white image.
The camera is based on the Leica M9 and was on sale until 2015. It was replaced by the Leica Monochrome (type 246).
The demand was so strong that the M Monochrom had partial delivery times of up to six months within the first one to one and a half years.
Many photographers still swear by the image reproduction of this camera, because the photos have an appearance and depth that differs significantly from conventional digital B/W photos. This can partly be explained by the specially adapted sensor.
What is special about the offered M monochrome is that it is a 0-series (pilot run) camera!
These are cameras that were produced before the planned market launch to be loaned to selected photographers for practical testing. As a rule, pilot series models have all the technical features of regular series production.
Generally, 0-series cameras are dismantled after the test phase in the factory and examined in detail in all areas in order to implement any detail improvements in the production version. Therefore, finding one of these models is extremely rare!
Of the Leica M Monochrom, there were only 50 pieces made and it is not known exactly how many of these cameras still exist.
Our Leica M Monochrome 0-series has gotten a regular serial number!
The camera is equipped with a new CCD sensor and comes in its original packaging. The cosmetic condition is good.
Total production: 50 pieces 0-series
Rarity forecast: R9
