    Wow.

    That's crazy incredible.

    Sort of Hasselblad-esque, don't you think?

    Yea sort of right. Not sure why these were made. I haven't had time to look it up yet.

    Hey, which one of us hasn't had one of those "seemed like a good idea at the time" moments? ;)

    Cameras done up like this are usually anniversary or milestone models- been in production for XX years or XXXX units sold.

    Contax isn't the only brand to have done it. Pentax had at least one (an LX if I recall) if not more. Not sure of any other brands, but it would surprise to find a gold Leica floating around.

    Not my thing, but if you like it and can afford it, why not? :)

    Personally, my taste would go toward platinum or titanium . . . something really light, tough, silver and black, with absolutely zero plastic in it.
