If you are an old school photographer ever nostalgic for that good old brand and classic look that was the mark of the elite in your field you would be happy to find a new Leica Titanium Special Edition D-Lux 5 camera in your Xmas stocking.
Leica once the sentimental standard of the photography industry is just launching the new Titanium Special Edition version of their compact D-Lux 5 camera, available for purchase at the end of October for around $1350.
This cute little baby comes with a smart looking anodized silver-grey finish presented in a special premium grade leather case and presentation set. Nice!
Other than the finish and special edition presentation accessories which are really nice, the specificationd for the new Titanium Special Edition D-Lux 5 camera are about the same as the standard but less fancy and more affordable Leica D-Lux 5.
Addendum: One friend who is a professional photographer and a long-time classic Leica owner suggests that for value and resale purposes going for the Special Edition version especially if you have both the opportunity and means.
