Leica M8 special edition will be out in pristine white
Ever wonder why the "perceived" value of any gadget rises parabolically when you attach the tag "special edition" to it ? Well, not to worry if you haven't, you can still gawk at this all-white Leica M8, due to be out soon in extremely limited numbers and exclusively from Leica.
The German camera maker has retained the specs of the original M8 rangefinder though, while dousing the body in pure white - the camera comes with an all-white casing, a white leather trim and brushed aluminium controls. Even the lens - Elmarit 28mm ƒ2.8 aspherical - follows suit with a silver finish. Truly some lovely eye-candy to add to your photo equipment if you are a rich kid, even if you choose to overlook the trademark hand-assembled body and fine quality that each Leica has been traditionally associated with.
No news about the pricing or release date just yet, so just keep your fingers crossed and expect to drop a huge bundle on this little fella.
