Would you spend $31,792 on this white Leica camera?

Leica's pricey limited-edition white M9-P digital camera might be the most regal (and ridiculously priced) shooter of 2012.

This rare Leica camera is white-hot, and costs a fortune. Leica

German camera manufacturer Leica today announced a limited-edition white M9-P digital camera -- quite limited, actually; only 50 will be available. The special release coincides with the recent launch of the Leica Daimaru camera store in Tokyo.

The 18.5-megapixel Leica M9-P full-frame digital camera features an astounding feature set that normally commands a retail price around $7,995. However, this limited-edition run carries a much heftier price of 2,620,000 Japanese yen, which translates to an astounding $31,792.

The package, which costs as much as a fairly nice car, includes a silver Noctilux M f0.95/50mm ASPH lens, silver chrome body styling, white leather on the body (with matching strap), and white logo text on the top.
