In a photography world ruled by vintage filters and black-and-white imagery, Leica’s $8,000 shooter fits right in and reigns supreme as the elite option for colorless portraits. Its 18MP full-frame sensor generates higher-detailed and sharper images by taking in more available light. Then there’s the sexy retro-styled body case, a fashion statement that's just as gorgeous as the photos captured on the camera.
