Photographer hawks T-shirts to fund Leica M9 purchase

Jarle Aasland wants the M9, but he's not simply sitting down and thinking about it. He's selling shirts to fund his dream camera.

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.

Jarle Aasland really wants one of these. Leica

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."
