It’s been quite the week for special-edition Leica cameras, with another one clamouring for your attention. This time it’s the rather lovely Lecia M Monochrom that gets the glamorous makeover, with the firm teaming up with rockstar Lenny Kravitz to create the M Monochrom Drifter.

The M Monochrom is, as the name implies, Leica’s black-and-white digital camera, sporting a 24MP full-frame sensor. The name “Drifter” comes from Kravitz himself, as he explains: “I’m a drifter. That has been my life since I was 15-years-old; I’m always on the road.”
