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. 
Move along nothing to see here!
