    Oh LEICA why do you do this to me??? You know I love you but I can’t afford you, and then you go making yourself GREEN, my favourite colour. Oh LEICA, you knew that, didn’t you?

    So… who wants to make a donation to my GREEN LEICA FUND?

    The good Doktor saw how fabulous my a la carte panda MP looked but is too proud to copy it verbatim. Glad to help. 🙂

    50 years from now the x2 will be a garbage or recycled and the MP will be a million-dollar collectible. Film will never die!

  • Adrian G.

    Is good to see that they still making film cameras.

    I was waiting for a Leica MP limited edition, but not this one.
    Olive is the color of the military goods.

  • MJr

    Most awesome color in the world for a Leica body !

    I wonder how a Fuji X100 would look with this color and texture. 😀

  • Mardock

    So it’s NOT an April Fool’s joke, then.

    • Brian Griffin

      no wrong answer to that one.

  • Charlie

    While we’re on the subject, just WHAT color is the G-Star Sexy Denim Raw D-Lux model anyway? Green, gray, gray-green, olive drab, Ghurka… Even the photos of it don’t seem to agree.

  • $16,500 for the MP is actually quite a good price. Collectors edition of a great camera + an excellent lens. That camera will only increase in value.

  • hexx

    looking at how many colours are there in AdobeRGB space – endless possibilities for limited editions…

  • Simon

    It looks like the M 8.2 Safari edition. Both are reminiscent of early olive army models.

    It’s good to see the tradition of this colour living on.

  • Clint

    Perfect for the poser with the canvas ‘photo vest’.

  • David

    I personally like the special-edition cameras and own a couple myself. Everyone has their aesthetic preferences. For this version, my only questions is how well does the 35mm FLE really work with a film body? I know it is designed for the digital M so the contrast is very high.

      I know nothing about the FLE, but the hammertone LHSA body is very sweet. They’re practically giving those away on Ebay these days, right? 🙂
