    Wow, a personal letter from the CEO. Must be worth a couple grand by itself. I’ve got an idea: cameraleather.com.

    Wonder what they conver in the private sessions . . . I have to admit the silver chrome is nice since that matches all of the other silver chrome leica lenses that I own. But I can’t deal with the brown leather.

  • Nobody Special

    Wait just a minute……..a personal letter from Alfred Schopf?

    Boy I guess Leica does communicate to Leica owners – as long as you drop a cool $17.5K for the privilege…and lo and behold, there is the Silver finish Leica owners who actually use the cameras have been asking for.

    Thus Leica continues on with it’s quest to prove that it’s happy taking care of the well healed client, but drags it’s feet with the Leica user. Oh, does it take R lenses? Thought not.

  • get real

    Does it come with the nice finger print on the viewfinder like in the photo. Who does their product shots, greasy fingers?

  • M!

    let me guess, $17.5k and you get fake ostrich leather?

    For $17,500, the person who comes to your home to “train” you better be a Victoria’s Secret model!
