As we recently reported, the newly released Leica M Monochrom ‘Jim Marshall' Set has just started shipping. We were able to briefly get our hands on one of the first ones, thanks to its very generous owner, and do an unboxing video for your viewing pleasure.
The camera is just just stunning. Finished in matte brass, the surface has a vintage look that is hard to describe. I'm not usually one to get too excited about special editions, but having known Jim and being long-time admirer of his work, this set is one of the nicest I've seen.
Check out the video below for a detailed unboxing and overview of the Jim Marshall set. Be sure to click the box in the lower right to make the video show full screen and in high res.

i had heard that someone asked Jim if he liked digital, and said he did not. It is interesting that you chose to put these on the market. Would it not have made more sense to do a film camera…..
Digital has come a long way since Jim’s passing. I’d like to think he would have heartily embraced the M Monochrom.
