What can you get for AU$35,000? A car or three, a deposit on a house, or one of these Leica M9 cameras.
That's the estimated cost of the latest M9 Titanium camera, designed by Walter de'Silva, chief designer from Volkswagen. Keeping the car theme going even further, the camera is housed not just in a titanium shell, but also has Nappa leather usually found inside an Audi.
On show at Photokina 2010, this little baby will be limited to just 500 units worldwide, of which we'll probably see just 10 make it to Australia — and according to a Leica representative, they're likely to be snapped up quickly. Paired with a 35mm f/1.4 lens, also made entirely of titanium, no wonder it was kept behind plate glass at the photography expo.
