    No, I think this is real. Seen today on the boards. No need for a white card any more, just find a mirror!

    Brushed aluminum doesn't work for me, I want mine with gold plated controls and lenses with a white sable strap to match!

    Embarrassing.

    I thought Leica was over that designer crap.

    (Better hide this post from the wifey .... she'll want one to match her new white watch ... )

    Special Edition All-White Leica M8

    Who ever provided the write up for the Luxist site got something very wrong.

    "Leica is the favored camera for famous photographers ranging from Henri Cartier Bresson and Diane Arbus to Nan Goldin."

    Arbus never use a Leica....

    "The market wants a Leica to be a Leica: the inheritor of tradition, the subject of lore, and indisputably a mark of status to own."
    Mike Johnston

    I'm banning the first one that gets this for 24 hours just so you can THINK about it.

    Next thing we know it will shave our eyebrows too.

    You silly nay-sayers. For many, Leica is a prestige brand. This is yet another way for those with more money than sense to decorate themselves

    Give them time. They'll be over every Paris Hilton clone's shoulder....All they need to do is give one pink one to anyone who's famous for, well, just being famous, and everyone's agent will be calling asking for one in ______. Strategy fits nicely with the new "S" mode on the 8.2....

    I'm all for generating revenue, but geesh....

    The white leather might keep the hands of an intrepid photojournalist cool while shooting in hot, war-torn desert locations. Maybe Michael Kamber should update his review...

    Sorry I just can't get my head around this one. A white camera to me is just something for the life of me i could not wear around my neck. Honestly they could not give me one, it's that bad. LOL

    Exactly! Which is why I could never leave the house with it.

    Now my wife would love it for that very reason ... a camera I wouldn't appropriate like I did her R6.2 ... LOL!

    Just don't read a newspaper and then pick this baby up! I'm sure after a bit of use it will be a nice smudgy light gray.....

    But that's OK -- it'd be 18% grey!

    BTW - It's an M8 - not even the 8.2 wanted to be white!

    Best,
