does it just make it look like a leica? Cool instructable either way, I dont get why leicas are so expensive I think they are ugly and overpriced. xD
The Leica M9 cost's $7999 AUD (Australian Dollars) because of the quality of parts that it uses. It's a full frame camera (35mm film equiv.) It is also put together by hand in Germany. When you buy a Leica you pay for the quality of the camera. Nothing can beat it. I reckon it is one of the most iconic and best looking camera of all time.

I think this one is better...
Leica M9 titanium edition, designed by walter d'sivia. $26000. Nothing can beat it. I reckon it is the most iconic and best looking camera of all time.
