I certainly realize that anything is worth exactly what someone is
willing to pay for it.  Nonetheless, for US$68.00 one can buy many fine
paperweights.  I am simply curious, just what makes this one worth US$68
to you, considering all of the other photographic uses for the same
amount of money?

They are seeking to emulate the Great Kyle Cassidy, who snagged a similar 
collectible several years ago.  It was dubbed the Hindenberg-Leica, I 
and probably still is among his other collection of Leicas.  He had planned 
make it work, but now I think He is trying to get Digital innards for it.

Kyle? we need an update!
