The most beautiful Leica in recent years...

Yes....it looks good. But at 9900 bucks, is it that appealing?

"Includes a 35 f/2 Summicron ASPH" - retail over $3000.
The M-P is pushing $8000, so it's actually a killer 'kit lens deal' :)

The fact of the matter is that since
"this Safari Set is limited to 1500 pieces worldwide"

This is a collector's item just waiting to be sat in the study's new diorama alongside the stuffed tiger and pith helmet.
But if you were about to buy an M-P/35 Cron, you just got a good deal!

I like the colour, looks pretty cool, prefer it to Silver Chrome.

Yes, coogee, I think it looks very cool.
But, I doubt they'e coming out with other lenses that will match with this set. In fact, some lenses only come in black...right? Makes it seem like more of a collector piece than "user" piece.

But as Coogee mentions, its cheaper than the sum of its parts - which is pretty unique, given the color. If someone were in the market for a M240, this has to be a deal. Use it Id say! That and the new Leica strap by Artisan and Artist, and wow, what a combo!

Not just the M240...actually it's the M-P version. Not bad.
Still...it IS expensive!
