And a rear view. Bit fuzzy, but a P&S digital is too complex for my RF mind ... ;)

ooohh, i like it!

i may have to commit sacrilege and put a red cover on one of the p's.
it goes against my basic belief system but that is so hot looking!

Didn't Leica offer a covering like that?

I am thinking that would look good on the Canonet. that I picked up from Rob.

"Naked Came the Rangefinder", Sounds kind of like a novel, does't it?

That looks quite spiffy. Now get one with bright green, and Christmas will be taken care of. On eBay I've seen several 4s, 5s, and 6s with various colors. I'm sure they are re-covers, but what does that have to do with taking pictures?

As for Leicas, for as long as they have been around, there have been a never-ending run of "special" coverings and even "special" editions. Anything to be unique (and add to the price!)

Looks good, William! A bit too maroonish for me though, but it goes very nice with chrome and adds a sense of class and workmanship to the camera on top of the class and distinction a Kiev already possesses.

Very classy Kiev!
