I think it’s fair to say that the Leica M9 is one of the most beautiful cameras ever made. Since it’s launch last year it has been incredibly popular despite a very high price tag. It is still almost impossible to get hold of in a store. Today Leica has released details of a new special edition Leica M9 Titanium that comes with a titanium coated Summilux 35mm ASPH lens. But instead of this being a simple titanium version of the current M9, it features an entirely new top design that incorporates a new style of viewfinder to electronically project the fame lines into the viewfinder. Prices, more info and photos to follow soon! UPDATE: Price is 22,000Euros for the Body+lens+lens shade+book.

WOW only 22 000euro that’s a freaky good deal! But seriously, it’s beautiful, and they produces great image quality, but I don’t know, between paying that price for a camera and putting cashdown on a house… 🙂
