Leica M8 Digital Rangefinder

I have always loved the timeless looks of the Leica camera's, and here I do mean timeless as
they haven't changed the styling in like 40 years. I wouldn't change the style either, it looks
exactly like what it is - a camera. If you asked anyone anywhere in the world to draw a camera
the result would look very much like one of these, it's tough to pull of that kind of design
authenticity these days without appearing ersatz or cliche. How much is all of that worth?
How about 6 grand. Oh, and it takes nice pictures.

BTW: The folks over @ dpreview.com run an excellent site which hosts the most extensive and
helpfull digital camera product reviews and explainers, I highly recommend it www.dpreview.com
