The rich peopel post: Leica M7 for $223k and Hasselblad Nasa kit for $51k


How expensive can mirrorless cameras be? A reader just sent me the link to these two cameras:
1) On top you see the Hasselblad Nasa kit. There are less of twenty of these cameras on the world. And it’s for sale for $51 thousand .
2) And the Hasselblad is cheap compared to that $223 thousand Leica M7 Titanium kit available .
Think positive. Unlike the Hasselblad kit you will get three lenses along the M7 :)

By the way both are film cameras. Unlike digital these cameras will last your lifetime (if you can afford them).

Found via Slidoo eBay.

    You can always make a reasonable offer! :)

    Cannot believe they are charging 100 bucks for the shipping…..!

    Yeah, my offer was 1 dollar, it was declined! I showed and told my 6 year old daughter about the $223 thousand Leica M7 Titanium kit and she replied “That’s a rip off”
    I could only smile :)

    the hassy is not mirrorless!!! go and buy an a99 instead of crappy leicaz

  • chris

    Lifetime probably depends on how long 35mm film and processing stays around for.

    I highly doubt any Blad can go up to 150k shutter cycles, let alone last a life time. Even the didigtal Leica Ms are shittier compared tot heir film bothers. At the shop, Leica m9’s come back for all kinds of reasons, dust inside sensor, Af strange noises, shutter button problems. The old f f2 were tested to 150 k, the old nikon rangefinders in terms of durabilitycould run circles over any Leica or Blad.

    Thanks for posting these. Funny as it is, showing these things is a good way for peopel to get perspective.
    At least there are no ivory parts, but I wouldn’t be surprized.

    That’s it! I’m selling my M7 to raise money for the titanium version. It got to be better. Does it have AF? Water and bullett proof?

    pe_OPEL are more rich, perhaps …

  • Andy

    M7 is a valuable camera for sure but they really are taking the piss with that price.
    I just hope there are no rich nutters around willing to give these a-holes that kind of money.

  • sav

    An M9 does not have autofocus.

    Congratulations on giving your kid one more wrong impression of the world :)

    Like the poster before you said, the seller is accepting offers. Having a high list price is a way of getting their listing right up the list when you sort the search results by highest price first. People sort things this way to skip through pages and pages of unwanted stuff that show up in the search results. As we speak, searching for “leica” on ebay brings up 37901 results and guess what? This one is on top.
