The classic M8 made it into our recent best 60s-style cameras feature at Modculture, so you just know we would be excited about the arrival of the Leica M9, the company's first full frame digital rangefinder camera.

The looks alone are a head-turner, but if you take our photography seriously, you'll like what you hear about the inner workings too. Those include an 18-megapixel, full-frame 24 x 36mm sensor, compatibility with Leica's M lenses, ISO from 80 to 2500 and shutter speeds of up to 1/4000 of a second (with barely a noise when in use). Build quality isn't bad either – a one-piece, full metal housing, solid brass top and bottom plates and room for a 2.5-inch monitor on the rear.

It's a dream, but here's the nightmare – it retails for  hefty £4,850 in either the contrast or all-black colourway.
