Looking on eBay for a Leica X2 I came accross a Leica X2 designed by Paul Smith (??), in orange, yellow and green leather and all that for a mere $4k plus. Am I the only one finding the colors ridiculous on a Leica camera? I mean, it's like going out to shoot with some Tupperware. Add to that taupe leather case it comes with and you have a mini colourful Christmas three. Btw, Merry Christmas everybody

Looks like it was designed by the same guy who did the Harlequin Golf model from years ago.

Not until yesterday, then I did a google search, saw his style and prices and I realized why I've never heard of him.

But those are not from Leica, but 3rd party.

So what is the purpose of this thread exactly? To bash a product that you do not intend to buy, you cannot afford, and that was not targeted at you in the first place?

I can afford it, but I think I'd rather burn my money than to give it to Leica or Paul Smith to support future development of similarly ugly and overpriced crap.

That is a very strong statement, full of hatred. And secret envy

You are so easily offended. Why do you care what others think about kitch art? I was just making fun of Mattel. I mean Leica.

I am not offended at all and I couldn't care less. Not a shareholder in leica either

I just find this kind of threads very petty no matter what the product being bashed.
