Leica Camera will be changing the Leica M camera leatherette cladding for several M cameras.
Leica is making this change as the "Vulcanite" material is no longer available. After extensive quality control test, we have selected this particular leatherette cladding. The leatherette differs from the "Vulcanite" used up to now. The new trim is slightly softer with a flatter surface embossing and a more matte finish. This improves the users hold on the camera.
Following M cameras will now have a leatherette cladding as opposed to the previous vulcanite cladding:
- Leica M9
- Leica M9-P
- Leica M7 & MP (à la carte)
