According to DPR it is a collaboration. The article led me to believe there was yet another camera based on MN's design...

Beautiful camera but I'm not sure about the electric shaver "grill", mainly for keeping it clean.

I've had and used my old Leica Rangefinder 11f since 1981. It's a 1952 model.

It looks much better than this Jony Ive designed modern Leica.

I feel the classic Leica rangefinder look is a classic.

I agree. K-01 is a classic in terms of styling. Too bad it is about a 100g too heavy. Otherwise I would have owned one.

I've linked this photo from Steven Huff's review before - Newson's K-01 design is clearly (if not consciously) derivative - Leica Digilux.

Ha, if that camera had a Pentax logo on it instead of a Leica, people would hate it and start saying they will jump ship
And I think the K-01 looks better than that Leica - the Leica reminds me too much of a microphone.

Wow, that's a lot of resources to go into a single camera. I wonder if they will ever go into production or if it will forever be one of a kind.
Won't be cheap, I bet...
It will probably remain one of a kind - otherwise it diminishes its charity purposes somewhat.... I think... something like that anyway

Crewl1 : Probs taken on a 5D

Monochrome: So, maybe he always wanted to design for Leica in the first place?
Wish he'd stuck to that dream and let Pentax aficionado's and engineers design the shells.
At least the guts of the K-01 more then make up for Newsons efforts.

There must be a Marc Newson designed case to keep dust and gunk out of those holes. And where's the Ive's bag to put the whole thing in?
