    You should get two Leicas. That way, you can say "my other camera is a Leica too".

    But if you really want to impress people, get a Linhof. It has an enamel crest!

    I bought an M2 about five years ago. I bought it because I have always wanted one and I could finally afford one. I love it. I shoot it because it is fun to use. I like the way it handles, I love the fact that it is pure simplicity. I have other cameras, but I prefer this one. I do get an occasional rude comment about film being out of style, but I really don't care what others think. I also have a Nikon D700, but I bought it for my girlfriend to use, she doesn't like my old film cameras.

    Really? I've never gotten that kind of comment. Usually I get "Cool! A film camera!" Or "Hey look at that! A REAL camera!"

    I usually hear "wow a Leica, you must be a very talented and important person" to which I respond "yes, yes I am!"

    You'd be more talented, and more important if you had a Linhof. Like me.

    Plus, you'd be able to say "yes, well, my other camera is a Leica".

    A gold Leica M7 is a fine camera, and a ridiculous extravagance, and a status symbol.

    An unused Leica M7 is a tragedy.

    I wouldn't pay the purchase price for a Leica M7, but I don't object to anyone who does, and uses the camera to make photographs.
    I hate gold cameras, they are bling for the tasteless, no matter how wealthy.

    Only a New Orleans pimp would buy a gold plated camera.
