updated 07:05 pm EDT, Thu March 22, 2012

Limited production of only 50 cameras

Leica is readying an extremely limited edition white version of its M9-P digital rangefinder camera. The will be making only 50 of these cameras to commemorate the opening of its new facility in Tokyo. The camera body itself is a white lacquer finish with some parts covered in white calf's leather. The camera comes fitted with a very bright, f0.95 50mm lens.

The exclusivity will carry a steep premium, as the price is a full $2.62 million yen ($31,700 USD). The current M9-P, in comparison, costs $8,000.

Leica rolled out the standard version of the device in 2011. Targeting professional or serious photography enthusiasts, the camera incorporates an 18-megapixel full-frame 24x 36mm sensor with an interchangeable lens system. [via Impress]
