    The price is way out of my league anyway but even if I had the $$$ I might consider something else...

    and that's all that matters :D

    my $9.99 thrift store nikon F3 +50mm 1.4 is probably a better hammer/"beat down the bad guy" weapon anyhow, no single-use tools in my arsenal :wink:!

    maybe I'm missing something here. It's a black leica MP with a leicavit -- very pretty, but $70K?

    Very pretty, but in my age bracket I prefer something I can use.

    It also cost one million. It's unique because it's so expensive which is because it's unique. Kinda like Edie Sedgwick or Paris Hilton.

    I'd be frightened to take it out and use it, and it makes me wonder what sort of person would buy it.

    Someone with quite a lot of money and a very small penis. Your typical Leicaphool, in other words. :wink:

    The sort of person who won't be using it for it's intended use.

    Who the hell pays anything more than 1000 for a 35mm still camera, I mean really. 250 is a bit much I could justify 1000 or more for something larger format.

    I would buy it. Use the heck out of it! You know. Get some real use marks on it, gently of course then take pictures and send them back to the seller as well as post them here for your enjoyment. Something this cool should not be sitting in a glass case, regardless of how much it costs. I'll pay 700 usd. LOL.
