As if Leica cameras weren’t expensive enough, it seems that the camera manufacturer has a new limited edition camera planned that will set you back ¥283,500 ($2,795). In conjunction with Leica opening their store in the SOGO departmental store in Yokohama, Japan, the company has decided to release a limited edition Leica X2 Yokohama Edition camera, and by limited we are talking about only 30 such units ever being made. The camera will not differ from the original X2 in terms of hardware, with the main difference being that in the case of the limited edition model, it will sport a lizard-style leather for its body, and will feature the same material for its shoulder strap and camera protector. The Leica store in SOGO is currently accepting pre-orders for the camera with a released slated for around July.
