My friend bought a regular edition one for 1000$, so this one doesn't seem outrageously overpriced.

I'll wait for the limited version of the Vario X instead. Oh, come to think about it, the Vario X is limited by default

This is lighter than the dlux4 since the sensor is smaller.

I'm not buying the camera, but it does look nice for those who can afford one, but I don't need to thrash the brand, camera or people who would buy one.

And as Daniel (thrice) mentioned in the past, some of these DLux editions does come with a free Lightroom software as well as longer warranties.

I agree it does look nice but the naming and branding is cheesy. Raw edition really?

I would like to see someone pixel compare this with LX7 and defend (with a straight face) how the price justify the performance improvement over LX7 and how $900 extra for Lightroom software and longer warranties is a bargain.

P.S. Of course I know there is no performance improvement over LX7.

The bourgeoisie who live paycheck to paycheck just don't know what is like to be a sports star, ceo, drug dealer, or Arab potentate looking for a way to spend their money for a tax write off. Only the poor rich would drop money on this little P&S, the real rich only covet the Lunar.

That leather case is pretty cool but I agree on the "RAW EDITION" thing, ugh.

If that's a really great leather case, I can see something like that being just $500 already...

You don't want to know how much a tiny piece of leather goes for on a alligator watch strap from say ALS or Breguet or Patek..

i guess leica has always whored itself out to keep a revenue stream going, ie:

still, it doesn't exactly make the company endearing when they churn out this crap.

or put another way:

i own an M6, and if i were fond enough of rangefinder shooting (which i'm not at this point) i would seriously consider getting a digital M. i could live with like a 28 and 50mm, or even just a 35. i love the function of the M6 - i think it's great for the particular approach to shooting that it affords.

however when i see things like this it makes me question whether or not i'd want to buy a digital M even if i decided it was worth it for me. on one hand i *assume* the form and function would be more or less as satisfying as an M6, which would make the purchase a no-brainer. but jeez, the thought of buying further into a brand that works to hard to be a status symbol is really off-putting.

perhaps this logic is foolish since, present camera aside, they produce wonderful optics and at least one wonderful camera, but that's how stuff like this makes me feel.

one man's crap, another man's camera Choose what you like to shoot, but what is it about a limited edition camera that is "crap"? Every manufacturer or producer makes a limited edition and sell it for more anyway. The market dictates if there is a price for product, its simple. If these limited edition Leicas (or Porsches, or Ferraris or Patek Phillipe or Louis Vuitton bags, etc) can't sell at a higher asking price, these manufacturers would have stopped offering such products 100 years back.

Don't buy a digital M then, since it's not worth it for you, but why the anger?

G-STAR RAW is a hipster jeans manufacturer, but yeah, it's the same camera in the way that the Hermes edition M9 is functionally no different than a standard M9.
