Designed by photographer Rolf Sachs, this limited-edition Leica M-P is wrapped in a material that should be instantly familiar to table tennis enthusiasts. Discovering a Leica camera built with the textured red rubber from a ping pong paddle may be unexpected, but the real shock here is the price -- $14,950 -- which gets you a set that includes a black shell case, Leica SF 40 flash, carrying strap, cleaning tools and a nylon pouch. Last but not least, there's the lens, a Leica Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. The sets are limited to 79 units and can be purchased at select Leica stores. Alternatively, you can pre-order yours online at
