    Pretty…..Members Only?…Stick it where the Sun don’t shine.

    • Pity I’m not part of the Club: I was ready to buy three/four of these.. Lol

      Jokes aside, this looks really nice, the 90mm too.

      • Very nice indeed – have not seen many limited editions in blue.

  • Neopulse

    I think this is the first time for me admiring the look of an M camera.

    • they should offer this color as an option for all M cameras

      • Simon

        Agreed. Would be good to see the “à la carte” program expanded to more cameras.

        I’d still never buy silver finish but I bet blue and black looks good too.

          Wait, isn’t the M part of the á la carte program?

    Blue bod, no dot — think it’ll fool the muggers?


    Handsome camera. Interesting choice to go with the 90, don’t think I’ve ever seen that before with a SE. Anyone know why this camera and the Safari have the frame selector? I think its the right way to go aesthetically and utility. I always use the selector on my M9 and thought the exclusion on the ME and M240 was a big mistake.

    • Poki

      Seems like it’s based on the M-P 240, that’s why it got the frame line selector.

    Prussian blue ! Prussian blue ! I like Prussia ,and I like blue ! But I don’t have money ! Yeah, who can send me ?

      the Greek Govt seems to get plenty… with no hope of repayments, ask them the trick!

  • I’d ask how much, but A) i’m not a member, B) I probably still couldn’t afford it eve if membership was not a requirement

    Still, very nice set, I like the blue and silver combo, nice 90mm that goes with it. Curious, why a 90mm lens with this set?

  • Poki

    Could someone please educate me – why 1975 – 2015? What happened 1975? And also, is the 90mm Summicron somehow more shiny than the standard silver one?
