woooo! Its a beauty and looks like its mint and un-used.
The price tag is equally amazing too. No wonder the previous owner did not use it. What if he got mugged because of the camera?:)

It's a beauty, but at USD4,999.00 (S$7,400.00)...I do not know if I can afford to part with my cash at current situation. ;p

Gee, even if by some remote chance I can afford to part with that kind of money, I'm not even sure I would be prepared to use it... too precious to use... :eek:

Nah, the silver one is very cheap, compare w/ the LX gold :bsmilie:




Only 300 pieces of the LX Gold were manufactured, 200pcs for the Japanese home market and 100pcs for the international market. Serial numbers for the LX Gold ranged from XM001 to XM300 (XM meaning ten million). Sales started in November 1981 at 850,000 Yen :bigeyes:

The gold one looks really pretty... but looks really heavy too. Anyone actually knows the weight of that thing?

With the gold LX, how to see the aperture readout in the viewfinder? :cool:
You'll be blinded by the gold from the aperture ring.

Actually I prefer the look of the silver, gold is too bling for me. :bsmilie:
With the value of money eroding during this global currency crises, the gold LX might be a good investment.
