Ebay Watch: Nikon’s Much-Coveted 13mm f/5.6 Distortion-Free Lens and More
Gold Brunei Royal Edition Leica M6: $38,999.99
Its been a while since we’ve included a gold-plated camera in our weekly Ebay Watch, so here is one for old time’s sake. According to seller Zhuomingcamera, this camera is brand new and in all of its original packaging. Included with the auction is a matching 50mm f/1.4 lens.
What is unclear is whether or not this camera was originally made for Hassanal Bolkiah, the king of Brunei, and he didn’t want it, or if a bunch of these were produced for some sort of occasion. Either way, nothing quite says royalty like a 40K gold-plated camera, except for maybe a 40K platinum-plated camera, but that is besides the point.
