Best Collector's Item?

Leica just announced this Limited-Edition Titanium Edition of the M9. It's made of titanium, it's got real nice leather, it has LED framelines instead of old-fashioned brightlines, a built in handstrap, comes with a 35mm f/1.4 lens, and looks . . . weird? Especially that shiny candy-red Leica badge.

Only 500 will be made. The price: 22,000 Euro. But don't freak out! Because along with the camera and the lens the set also includes this weird baby bjorn-style "holster." So owners can be more conspicuous, harder to rob, and more likely to be robbed all at the same time.

So, yeah, whatever. I thought that if you owned an oil field you might be interested in knowing about this.
