Now for my regular exercise ( swimming against the tide )  ::)

Perhaps it is because I only recently escaped, but "white" makes me think of straitjackets, institutional corridors, orderlies and plain as can be appliances.

Cutesy colors make me think of the previously mentioned "Hello Kitty"/"Gangnam Style" consumer level.

IMO, black, with crisply engraved contrasting lettering/scales/etc., says "serious instrument".

Not least of my objections is the glaring-object-in-your-face I posted about before.

Damn this mud, …can't move my feet!

(P.S. - I'm not fond of pink pistol grips, either,.. WTF, grumble, mumble, …fade out with shaking jowls and frown.)  :P

A digital mirrorless with a similar design, would be a nice competitor to Leica M9. And would leave in shame Nikon DF. The photographic performance does not matter much for the target audience of such equipment, it is a small work of art (by chance) serves to photograph.

Ah the 'P' one of my fav designs I'd have one if only you could get them without curtain ripple, in black though not that daft white and red thing. The other one I'd love to have is the hassy xpan 2

Interesting take on colors! When I think about what you wrote I find that to be true in many applications! Thanks for making me think a bit today!

Beautiful piece of kit.

I could see several possible paths.  70D sensor and an M mount.  70D sensor and an EF-S spaced mount.  5D3 sensor and an EF mount.  Or 5D3 sensor and an original compatible with 50's era lenses (screw?) mount.

If the price were reasonable, I'd buy one.  Especially with the 5D3/EF mount, or the 5D3 with the original screw mount.

A pretty camera, but I also prefer black. Some chrome highlights against that black background might look nice. And some whitewall rotary controls?   Hope they dont capture you, I guess? :o :-\

<p><strong>Canon P Imperial Edition<br />

</strong>Canon Rumors reader Bernard sent me a few photos of his custom Canon P rangefinder. He had it redone in Tokyo with the help of <a href=\"http://www.japancamerahunter.com/\" target=\"_blank\">The Japan Camera Hunter</a>.</p>
<p>The camera is fully customized with a new paint job and striking red grip. I personally think this is a nicer rangefinder than the one that <a href=\"http://www.macrumors.com/2013/11/24/one-of-a-kind-products-designed-by-jony-ive-and-designer-marc-newson-sold-off-at-red-auction/\" target=\"_blank\">just went for $1.8mil</a> :)</p>
<p>What do you think of Bernard’s P?</p>
