Video Review of the Leica Monochrom M (Parody)

Leica m-monochromOur own Steve Meltzer offered his provocative take on the Leica Monochrom M last week and now here's a video "review" of this $8K black-and-white shooting digital rangefinder.

But before you take this "first YouTube review of the new Leica Monochrom" too seriously, be advised that it's clearly meant as a joke.

And it does have some funny moments including the strange appearance of a gun (made by Leica?) and this declaration by the reviewer: "The real pros only shoot black-and-white. That's what they told me at the store."

But even funnier, perhaps, are the angry comments below the video on YouTube, which don't seem to be in on the joke.

Check it out. (Extra points if you can tell us which Leica camera is actually featured in the video.)
