Sounds pretty accurate. It's Leica. They can come up with a price and charge what they want, because they don't need your money, you want their producits. It puts them in an advantageous position when it comes to setting prices.

Leicas are manufactured to extremely high standards, which does for one dictate their prices. The tolerances of what Leica deem acceptable are far tighter, resulting in more waste. As a result, their products are top notch. Specifically why you'd want an M9 though, is because M series rangefinders are extremely discrete and subtle, and have been described as the ultimate for street and candid photography. That, and insanely good and legendary glass like the f/0.95 Noctilux. You are right though, in your implication that they have a degree of fashion/designer cache, the Lecia name dictates a higher price, simply because.

Just ordered a new Panasonic LX3 to replace my old digital camera ready for a trip.

Also ordered:

Gordy Camera Strap - 58inch sling With split-ring lug mount connector & integral bumper and neck pad (dark brown leather and green wrapping to all)
JJC ALC-3 lens cap (no fiddling with lens caps)
16gb Bytestor class 6 SHDC card (cheap and not let me down in the past 5 years)
Addtional Panosonic battery (Just in case)
and
DMW-CLX3 Black Original Leather Case (in the end this was my guilty pleasure)

Only bit of existing kit to keep will be my Manfrotto 785B tripod which replaced a broken tripod a year or so ago.

Don't think there is anything else I need.
