    You'd think for the price of the Leica Titanium, they could afford lens and body caps:

    That's OK, apparently it comes in the coolest box ever.

    Though, I can not believe that the M9 Ti is this expensive

    It's about $4000US cheaper here from B&H. Give me your credit card #, I'll pick one up and send it to you. lol

    Perhaps we should start some kind of ownership timeshare. Sell shares in it and then each take turns to "own" it for a few months :)

    why so expensive you ask?

    1. It's a Leica

    2. It's made from titanium

    3. It's designed by Walter "fancy pants" de'Silva

    4. They are only producing 500.

    5. It's frickin' cool as hell.

    Though the holster case while extremely functional, is a tad fruity.

    I wander if Leica has an eBay account under a DBA name :biggrin:

    I want that holster.... Very Cool... Fruity? Hell No!

    I think the expectation is you buy a body for each lens ...
