Sorry, that thing looks like a Leica crossed with an enema nozzle.
A rectangular enema nozzle in the rectal passage ... most intriguing and disturbing observation  :o ... I sincerely hope you aren't speaking from personal experience ;D

My dear man, "crossed with" not "into".  It retains the properties of both.

However, I retract my statement, and say that instead it needs a charging cradle and a little stiff cleaning brush.   Looks more like a first gen rechargable electric shaver (ca. 1974) to me.

Either way, its bfu for a Leica, which is in and of itself, a piece of elgance.   Don't think there's much more elegant in camradom than an M3 with a 50 Summilux on it.

I don't see a hot shoe?! I guess Jony decided photog's don't need  flashes just like we didn't need cd drives on our Retina mac books.   :o

Ok so my $250k estimate might be a few factors low...

Why not make this with a Summilux or Noctilux? I agree it'll never really be used, but may as well go big, no?

Recently sold my MBP that had a CD drive (which I never used) in favor of the MBP with Retina & SSD ... don't miss the CD drive at all.

I agree, the CD drive is dead. Anything that can be done via CD is easily downloadable. Music? Forget about it. When was the last time anyone burnt a CD? My iPhone stores more music than all of my CD collection combined.

Maybe watching DVDs and Blue rays is a reason to still have it.  Then again theres Netflix ...

Storage? Ummm no, HDD and SSD have that covered now. And theres online storage available.
