New Leica M9-P

In a bid to make the Leica M9 as inconspicuous as possible for photojournalists, Leica has dropped the famous red dot logo on a re-styled version of the M9, the M9-P. No more need to pull out the black tape.

Spec-wise the M9-P is identical to the existing M9, although the new P has a scratch-resistant, sapphire crystal covering and a body finished in "vulcanite leatherette", which is  resistant to wear.

The new Leica M9-P will cost $7995.00 and will start shipping in July, 2011.
