    I must say, when I saw the first pictures of this camera I thought it was ridiculously ugly. Now with these views I think the camera looks OK for what it is: an experimental design intended for a noble goal. Knowing the background of Mr. Ive, it has the traits we’ve seen in his designs for Apple – and indeed for “Wall-e”. IMHO The Leica M has a powerful design element that makes it resemble a technical instrument fit for use inside a laboratory, contrasting strongly with the “toy-ish” look of this version of the camera.

    PS: I write this as I await the courier agent to deliver my own Leica M, ordered immediately after the camera was unveiled at Photokina 2012. Can’t wait! :-D

    Interesting, the first time I saw it, I was eek! what has Jony Ive designed! but now that I look at the real world pics, it looks not bad at all, it truly fits his Braun inspired designs and since it’s for charity and a one off, guess people can skip about no hot shoe and other features that are omitted argument since the camera will likely belong in a private collection and not to be used in the outside world.

    Alaa. What!? You ordered your M in 2012 and you’ve only just got it. I ordered my M about 3 months ago and it arrived 2 weeks later. You have the patience of a saint ;-)

    I actually really like the aesthetics of this design. It screams one off and rightly so. It’s wonderful to allow a designer of the calibre of Ive the freedom to do what he likes. But he has been sympathetic to the DNA of Leica and it looks very much a Leica still. I’d be proud to own and use this camera

      Thank you DannyBuoy, and I do appreciate your comment :-) I live in Kuwait, and that long delay is due to the fact that the demand in our local market is rather small :-/
      Anyhow, I’ve received the camera now and I love it!

    Funny how camerap0rn always seems to prefer full frontal shots, while the behind is chiefly forgotten.

    Are the white Leica gloves included?
