If you didn't know already, I had recently entered into a contest to win a Leica M. So far as contests go this one wasn't totally hopeless, the odds were about as good as they get. So hope against hope I did, and... well you would have heard about it if I had won.
Just so you're following where we are now, this (roughly) was the prize:
So now I'm trying to figure out how long it will take me to save up enough to get one myself. It's not quite as a bad as the archetypal male purchase fantasies (e.g. cars) but in this domain it's just as fantastic. Depending largely on lense(s) chosen, the bill would rise come in between 5000$ ~ 15000$.
Now if only I could only conjure an "affordable" Leica body to appear like this... :^)
