    I'm sorry to tell you that the $28K Ralph Gibson model is gone. But there's the $8K models available.

    I beg the question -- just what is a Ralph Gibson? I Gooogoed the name and came up with nothing. I Gooogoed "Ralph Gibson Photographer" and pretty much came up with the same thing.

    The Leica Monochrome is the only digital camera that I would ever consider using for serious photography. If I had the money I would buy one in a second. To obtain this camera some people would sell their first born to Rumplestiltskin.

    I don't know how you searched but I got numerous hits. Gibson is a well known inphotography, a familiar name around the world. Hang your head in shame and beat yourself severely with a 250 sheet box of FB paper. Seriously you need to do a lot of reading if you are really interested in photography. Learn about the greats before western civilization is destroyed completely.

    I don't subscribe to this signature model stuff, it's just a marketing ploy, I don't care even if Jesus Christ has got one, or uses one.

    A signature model would be bought as an investment rather than for day to day use.

    I think it is to his credit that HCB never endorsed Leica cameras in Leica advertising. I would be very surprised if they never asked him.

    No thank you. I am quite content with my M6s. $28K? $8K? I think the money - in my case, anyway - would be better spent/enjoyed on a s******d of HP5+, Tri-X and a five year (?) supply of Ilford paper!
    An assortment of F-series Nikons with quite a few Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and, just to help keep Duracell solvent, a D800.

    Favourite films: (1). KE ("Kodachrome Era"): 35mm: PKM25 and PKR64, HP5/Tri-X; 120: PKR64, PanF, FP4. (2). PKE ("Post-Kodachrome Era"): (a) 35mm: E100G, HP5 Plus/Tri-X and Delta 3200; (b) 120: E100G, PanF Plus, FP4 Plus, TMax 100.

    Just curious did his lack of endorsement make HCB a better photographer.

    Bresson always "impressed" me as sort of proof of the monkeys and typewriters theorem. If you walk about enough with a Leica around your neck you will eventually take some interesting photographs.
