You appreciate what is introduced at Photokina but actually getting hold of it is a different story altogether. Most of the time it is something you just can not afford. Or you simply decide that at the price point offered it does not deliver value for money and so give it a pass. The latest introduction is Leica’s newest limited edition product. It is exclusive, it is limited and the price has not been declared as yet though the rumor is that most of the pieces on offer has been claimed. So obviously the price point is going to be rather high.
The company held an exclusive press preview at Cologne. a gallery of executives from Leica and Volkswagen, who collaborated in the project and came up with the design formally unveiled the M9 ‘Titanium. As a camera it is still another M9 but it is a very fashionable M9 and you will love it if you like the little premium extras or the fancy high fashion.
The camera is coated with a fingerprint resistant overlay. Apart from the camera the package includes a 35mm Summilux F/1.4 prime lens, lens hood, a newfangled electronic illumination system and a fanciful cardboard box. There will be only 500 pieces and will be stamped ‘Titanium’.
