    While we poor mortals struggle to save enough for a 10d or 1dx I was
    reading that the Sultan of Brunei gives out to important visitors
    especially made Leica M6 cameras made of platinum and gold imbeded
    with diamonds the lens were gold in colour. I have enough trouble
    attracting attention with my 70-200 IS.

    I do much the same only I don't include the diamonds as I think they are far
    too ostentatious.

  3. Hmm, I wonder if "stock standard" EF1200mm f/5.6L USM costs more than
    these M6s? Original price of the above lens when it was released 10 years
    ago was 9.8M JPY (around $78K USD) :)
