  2. This was designed by the same guy that did the Pentax K-01. Anyone wanna complain here too?

  3. When i look at this piece of design, i have a strong longing to see the original camera.

  4. The moiré has been mentioned quite a lot online. On my iPhone it looked a bit like tartan. The Special Edition Leica Mc. I personally really like the look of this. As a one off piece of industrial design I think it is very impressive. I'd not want to own an M like that. The exposure dial looks difficult to use. The one in the M as it stands can be tricky to use in the heat of the moment.

  5. A really beautiful camera with optical height more demanding, a purchase that is very professional.
