PRC Leica M8.2 is 24k Gold-Plated and $29,300
Forget the Leica M7 Hermes. This special edition 60th Anniversary of the People’s Republic of China M7 puts that one to shame.
Included in the package is a 24 carat gold plated trimmings and the body is covered with red calf leather. Only 60 of these have been produced, each bearing a year number to from 1949-2009. The included lens is a Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 lens.
If you thought the Leica M7 Hermes was expensive. This Leica is out of your league. It’s $199,000 yuan or about $29,300 USD. Oh and it’s only sold in China, so if you’re in the area shopping for one of these, make sure it’s real and not a really good knock-off.
A little expensive for a film camera, but hey, there’s only 60. If it makes you feel any better, at least the box looks nice.
