Leica unveils M9 Titanium edition with €22,000 price tag

updated 09:15 pm EDT, Mon September 20, 2010

Titanium edition limited to 500 pieces

Leica has unveiled a special edition camera, the M9 Titanium, which was featured at a special event in Cologne. The camera is an upgraded version of the semi-professional M9, extensively constructed from titanium and designed in collaboration with Volkswagen. Leather trim, LED-illuminated frame lines, and fingerprint resistant overlays distinguish the special edition from its basic counterpart.

The company packages the camera with a titanium lens hood, new handstrap, and a customized holster. A 35mm Summilux F/1.4 prime lens has also been designed specifically for the special edition, using titanium components to match the body.

While the standard M9 fetches nearly $8,000, the Titanium edition will set customers back by €22,000 (~$28,730 USD). The company has limited production to just 500 pieces. [via Leica Rumors]

    silly

    you guys obviously don't appreciate good engineering. why, the attached hand strap has to be worth at least $1000 by itself. and I'm sure the titanium will pay for itself when it saves your embedded-in-Iraq butt, cause I'm sure most leicas these days end up in war zones and other dangerous areas where you'd wanna spend $10k to make sure you got the shot.
