Leica has announced the release of the D-Lux 7 Street Kit, an all-in-one offering Leica pitches as the ‘perfect choice for spontaneous street photography’
At the core of the new Street Kit is a black-finish Leica D-Lux 7. As with its non-street counterpart, which is effectively a rebranded Panasonic LUMIX LX100 II, the Street Kit D-Lux 7 offers a 17MP Four Thirds sensor with a Leica DC Vario-Summilux 10.9–34mm F1.7–2.8 ASPH lens in front (24 – 75mm full-frame equivalent).
Aside from the new black paint job, the Street Kit also throws in a matching hand grip, a black paracord camera strap designed in collaboration with COOPH and a spare battery.
The D-Lux 7 Street Kit is currently available to purchase from Leica Stores and authorized Leica retailers for $1,549. Considering you can get a black D-Lux 7 for $1,195, a Leica D-Lux 7 grip for $165, a Leica Leica BP-DC15 battery for $135 and the same Leica-branded paracord hand strap from COOPH for ~$120 , the kit is more of a convenience factor than a cost-savings measure, since you’re only saving $50 or so compared to purchasing all the components individually.
