Leica M8 Goes Digital, Expensive

Ah yes, the old-school Leica design goes into the digital age with a 10.3-megapixel sensor and a 2.5-inch LCD. How much can you expect to pay for digital convenience? How about $5,000!

If you’re not busy cleaning up the coffee you’ve just undoubtedly spilled on your shirt, the camera also has a 1/8000 shutter speed, 4GB of storage, and a black case. It’s “pro” in a compact case, which explains the $5,000 price tag and the magnesium alloy body. Did we mention that it costs $5,000? Because it costs $5,000.
