How do you make the beautiful, expensive Leica M9 even more beautiful and more expensive? Why, you add sapphire glass, chrome, and the tanned hide of a brown ostrich. Why does stunning always have to come at such a price?
Specifically, you're going to have to shell out $US12,950—about a $US6,000 markup over the original M9—for one of these very limited edition Leicas. Although since each camera sold comes packaged with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3, you could just think of it as a $US1 camera with extremely overpriced software. [Leica Rumors via UberGizmo]
