Leica is poised to introduce the very sexy White Leica M9-P in June. There are only 50 pieces made and from what I read, its a Japan-Only product. The major downside though is the cost, expected to be around 2.6m Yen or something like US$32k. That’s a pretty crazy amount of money for a Leica. It does come with the amazing 50mm Noctilux lens in an unavailable Chrome finish which is incredible (it’s available in Black for about US$11k, but not in Chrome). As I already own the White M8 Limited Edition, this is so tempting. But I don’t know if it’s worth the money. I do want an M9 with a Noctilux lens, but you can get the same setup for about US$19k (about US$8k for the body, US$11k for the lens), about 60% of this limited White one. But it’s White! How can you not want one?
