The Leica M9 is possibly the most expensive 35mm full-frame camera on the market today with a hefty price tag of $8,183.39. But that hasn't stopped me from dreaming of owning one, though I'm pretty sure it'll remain just a dream for a long time to come.
Photographer Jarle Aasland wants the M9, too, but he's not simply sitting down and thinking about it like me. This shutterbug's set up a Web site called Leicadream to explain his cause and sell T-shirts to fund his fantasy camera. Each casual top costs between $22.49 and $35.99, and is available in both men's and women's cuts.
Much as I would like to help Aasland get the M9, I think I'd rather save the money that would go toward buying a T-shirt and put it in my piggybank labeled "Future Leica."
