The Leica D-Lux solid gray, a two-tone alternative to the current standard model, will be available from the end of November 2015. In this new styling concept, the lens and control elements are now in silver. In combination with the grey-enameled body, this lends the Leica D-Lux solid gray a new, sophisticated and immediately recognizable look that transforms the camera into an elegant companion for capturing unique moments in pictures of impressive quality.

The technical specifications of the Leica D-Lux solid gray are identical to those of the standard model and impress with the same extensive range of features, versatile functions and an intuitive handling concept. In addition to the Leica D-Lux solid gray, the set also includes a Leica CF D flash in silver finish and a specially made camera carrying strap colour-matched to the new styling concept. The painstakingly finished carrying strap in genuine leather features exclusive Leica embossing. Its broad form and non-slip lining ensure particular comfort when carrying the camera.

In addition, Leica also announced a number of new products as a new, sub-brand, called 0.95.  Here are the first products of this new line:

Leica Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH. "Edition 0.95"

 Leica Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH.

With resolving powers that exceed those of the human eye, the Leica Noctilux-M stands alone as the world’s fastest aspherical lens for 35 mm photography. At maximum aperture, the extremely shallow depth of field enables exposures of unrivaled aesthetic quality with a unique bokeh. This exclusive special edition, limited to only 95 lenses, is technically identical to the serial lens and also sets the focus on its exceptional speed in terms of design: the “0.95” engraving stands out in white and all other engravings are muted with a matte-black anodized finish. Particularly striking features are the knurling that reflects the iconic design of the “S.T. Dupont for 0.95” pen collection and the distinctively placed glossy elements on the lens body and front cap. This is the first time that a glossy anodized finish – until now, used only for moving surfaces inside a lens – has been employed as a design element. Each lens of the edition is accompanied by a certificate that emphasizes its uniqueness. A lens that is as unique as the pictures that are taken with it. Order number: 11665


The very first 0.95 collection is the result of a collaboration with the French manufacturer of premium luggage and accessories. The quality, style and exclusiveness of the S.T. Dupont for 0.95 products reflects the exceptional standards of 0.95 and manifests its self-imposed commitment to absolute perfection.



This traditional fountain pen is made from matte-black Ceramium A.C.T.™, accentuated by a highly resilient gloss coating applied by physical vapor deposition (PVD). The cap features knurled details and an engraved “0.95” logo filled by hand with finest white lacquer by Dupont’s master finishers. The pen has a medium nib in 14-karat solid gold. Perfect for emphasizing the important things. Order number: 96425


The luxurious rollerball pen is made from the same innovative Ceramium A.C.T.™ material and brass refined with a PVD coating. Its smart rollerball technology enables fast and easy writing. The most elegant way to put good ideas to paper. Order number: 96426


The third in this exquisite series of 0.95 writing instruments impresses with the same highly resilient materials and distinctive design, per­fectly matching the fountain pen. A companion with which you will always find the right words – anywhere and anytime. Order number: 96427


The use of innovative Ceramium A.C.T.™ mate­rial on this classic gas lighter in matte and gloss finish lends it particularly enduring resilience. The engraved “0.95” logo is filled with finest white lacquer by Dupont’s master finishers. The decorative etched finish of all visible surfaces additionally creates a unique look and tactile experience. Equally unmistakable is the world famous “cling” when flicking it open. A lighter with a special touch for unforgettable moments. Order number: 96430


The robust pendant is crafted from finest-quality brass and hard coated by physical vapor deposition with an extremely durable surface finish in matte black. The ring itself is made from chromed steel. The “0.95” engraving is filled in with white Dupont lacquer, transforming the plain and simple design of the keyring pendant with its charac­teristic knurling into an elegant eye-catcher. Order number: 96429

  1. This is ridiculous. What's next, thousand dollar handbags?

  2. Why is this ridiculous? Nobody is forcing you to buy any of these accessories. But anyone that does, puts extra money into Leica's pocket, money that can be used to develop new cameras and lenses. What's wrong with that?

    1. Nothing wrong with that at all. Comments like the one above usually come from the Leica haters or individuals who are incapable to appreciate the finer things in life. They probably consider a Bic pen just as good as the new 0.95 writing instruments from Leica.
