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

    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!
    Some Nikons (F6, F5, F3P, F3HP, F2ASx4, F2A, F2 and a D800), with Ai/Ais Nikkors ranging from 15mm to 600mm; Leicas (M6X2), with Leitz glass from 28 to 90mm and a pair of Hasselblads (500c/ms), with Zeiss glass from 50 to 250mm. A bit of stuff for a no-longer practicing professional, but justifiable for a now-converted hobbyist who absolutely loves taking/making pictures.

    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.

    I remember years ago reading about him in Darkroom magazine. He printed his own photos. If I remember correctly, he uses a Focomat. If he's gone digital, I wonder what kind of prints he's offering now?
