The storied 'Safari' cameras from Leica

The first Leica cameras with this high-quality enamel finish in olive green were originally designed and constructed for military use in the field. What began in 1960 with the Leica M1 “Olive” manufactured for the German armed forces went on to become a story of legends in the camera world. While the subsequent olive green M3 and M4 cameras were manufactured exclusively for military use, 1977 saw the appearance of the olive green Leica R3 'Safari' camera in response to increasing demand from private customers.
This special edition was followed by a series of popular successors: the M6 TTL 'Safari' in 2000, the M8.2 'Safari' in 2008 and, in 2015, the M-P (Typ 240) 'Safari'. 

The Leica M10-P Edition 'Safari' camera and the Leica Summicron-M 50 f/2 Edition 'Safari' premium lens, both finished in olive green enamel, represent a perfect symbiosis of functionality, legacy, and design. All visible metallic components of the camera and lens are elaborately machined from solid brass. The premium baked enamel finish in olive green makes the camera and lens resistant to handling blemishes and scratches and provides enduring protection against external influences such as chemicals and UV light.
