New Leica M design by Marc Newson and Jony Ives

Well I saw this and said wouldn't it be neat if Pentax could get those two to design a new K-01 for Pentax. Check this link First Photos of the Special Edition Jony Ive-Designed Leica M Released

I am not crazy about the design, personally. I didn't hate the K-01 though, so I'd give him another shot.

I like the simplicity of the lines and design. If Jony Ives would design a camera I'm sure Pentax would sell the most amount ever.

The K-01 is much nicer in my view, an eye catcher, it looks really special. This "Leica" is too smooth, and who would pay Leica money for something that doesn't look like a Leica?
