How about this one?



I'm guessing its price would be at least twice as much as those LX2000s if it does show up on eBay ...

I wonder how many of those are still in perfect condition. I can probably guess Hoya has one locked away for the archives, but I don't know how many else have that in pristine condition. I can only guess, but the paint used on the camera doesn't seem to be one that could hold up to repeated use (or even just occasional use). :P

Looks like it has never been used.

Haven’t heard about the store before :
Shop eBay Canada Store - Cameras of SK-PHOTO:: Leica L M, Contax
but they sure have some sweet stuff


The other place writing :
eBay Store - Foto Can: Nikon Lens, Leica, 35mm Film SLR Cameras
“If you think you cannot afford a lens that you like, we want you to think again.”

For 5.500 $ I’m positive that I can’t afford it

I know an Italian guy here in NYC that have a belt and cigarette case that will perfectly match that golden camera.

too bad he is not in to photography but more in to horse tracks and making people sleep with the fish
