Definitely drool-worthy. Comes with jaw-dropping price tag:
"The UK suggested retail price of the LEICA M9 Titanium set is £19,800 including VAT"

As the "Titanium" tag would lead you to believe, it's lighter than the regular M9. 585 vs 335 g

That is a lot of $$$ for gram saved. Digital camera bodies have a short life span. Not for me, better things to spend my money on even though I liked using the M3 and M6.

Yikes!

Well, if nothing else the effect on your wallet would certainly leave the rest of your gear closet lighter than anything else you might have tried to lighten up!

It is with great sadness I must report they're already all pre-sold :-(

Knowing Leica collectors, 90% of them will go straight into the vault, never to be used. May I suggest a nice Ferrari edition Hasselbad as an alternative?
