    Lamborghini is made mostly of carbon fiber not titanium. It’s smooth and shiny surface and certainly does not have those ugly spots like an ostrich.

    • R!

      Actually lamborghini is also an accessorry and furnitures designer and at first they designed a tractor for Agriculture!!!!!
      It still is ugly…

  • CKDexterHaven

    Leica has made itself the butt of its own joke.

    What is not to like! As long as these “bling” cameras cause the talk of the town and sell, the value of my vintage gear goes up. Also since the profit margins are so high on these, the cost of the M system can be offset (a little).

    Also, this type of advertising is far cheaper than full page ads in major publications or on TV

  • Blah blah blah

    Blah blah blah Lieca doesn’t know what they’re doing.
    Blah blah blah Leica is for the rich.
    Blah blah blah Leica makes ugly cameras.
    Blah blah blah I will never shot a Leica.
    Blah blah blah bling and jewelry
    Blah blah blah fjfjjj – never ending negativity though articulate.

    • CKDexterHaven

      Nothing “articulate” about your ‘argument.’
      An argument which has no basis in fact, logic, or rationality. But, hey, whatever — one at a time:
      • Who said that? Leica does/did know what it’s doing. Sometimes. And, sometimes (increasingly often), they do something stupid. are we not supposed to react to that? This is an internet discussion thread. We’re discussing it.
      • I’m not rich. Never have been. I’ve owned two Leica M7s, a CM, an R7 and an R3 (or 4?). So, there.
      • Yes, they sometimes do. But, no one ever called the Ms “ugly.” The early Ms, and even the SM cameras are often referred to as some of the most beautiful and iconic designs.
      • Probably not. Not going forward. Their objectives have switched away from making the most useful tools for real photographers, and toward bottom line projects for dilettantes and sultans. More importantly, they too often turn their back on their own products. They’re technologically behind the competition, even while selling goods at inordinate prices. And, finally, quality control is not what it should be, especially considering price.
      • Bling and jewelry. Yeah. See their ‘special editions.’ See talentless tools walking around with $10k on their chests, as if the camera somehow gives them image ‘points.’
      • What?

      • Blah blah blah

        Sad, you missed the point entirely and proved what was exactly my point, i.e. the comments or discussions are critical in a non-constructive non-thought provoking manner. There is no perfect company, no perfect camera, no perfect CEO, Leica is no exception. However they produce what is arguably the best lenses available in the 35mm format and have produced exceptional products that garner attention and are in demand decades later. What other company has such a rich history and has provided that to the photographic community in such abundance?

        • george

          I agree, there is no need for the negativity. Cost per years of use with Leica are the least expensive in the industry, as Leica cameras have the longest in service records of any brand (Hasselblad 6×6 cameras may be comparable).

          If you do not like the special versions don’t buy them.

          • blah blah blah

            George,
            When I wrote the question, what other company…? The only one that came to mind was Hasselblad, such beautiful products, esthetics and quality. Let’s hope they make cameras well into the future, the transition to digital has been difficult for many of the marquis brands.

        • fjfjjj

          Will the cameras they produce today be in demand decades later? Not sure.

          • Blah Blah Blah

            Difficcult to tell with Leica. Collectors, reputation seekers and users all get thrown into the mix. The users may abandon older digital however the collectors may not.

  • JLMILES

    That is one beautiful camera. Unlike a lot of other special editions, this one looks like it’s meant to be used.

  • Pat Mann

    Too bad the D400 isn’t available in Ostrich. It’s such a gorgeous leather.

  • MarcoSartoriPhoto

    Facepalm.

  • george

    What is it with the fashion police, and all of the insults ? M class lenses are still the best in the world, and will outlast any auto-focus lens ever made.

    Based on life span (cost per year) M lenses are much cheaper. Example, my Canon lenses lasted 3 years before the internals wore out, and my M lenses have never worn out in over a decade or more.

    These “show” cameras are like T-shirts. Note, the general public will spend $200 on a NHL t-shirt that costs $28 without logos. You do not have to buy this “special” version.

    Please stop the negativity and get back to using your Leica

    • jj

      The lenses are great, yes, while snobs would put such nice glass on these new fad elitist toy, although it make nice his/his match w/Loonyblad though.

  • fjfjjj

    Ostrich leather, meet plastic lens cap.

  • Mikko Moilanen

    I like it, the especially the case is fine. This camera does have personality and unique character. Go Leica go!

  • Mikko Moilanen

    What a beauty! Look at those spots… I wonder how the leather ages. Will look even better as the time passes. Becomes better a day after day like good wine :D

  • Rayden

    What about a picture without the case on it. Probably would make sense wouldn’t it.

  • anon

    Looks like they’ve steam dried a turd and wrapped is around the camera!
