Our article on the Andy Summers “Signature” Monochrom has garnered no liking comments but, instead, a shedload of waspish antipathy. I even had to delete one comment because I deemed it offensive. I’m not surprised at all this because this latest creation manages to out-do the previous rock-star effort in the dubious taste stakes.
It was interesting to see, therefore, that Leica Rumors has a different take on the subject.
An LR reader sent in the above picture of what is said to be one of the prototype designs which wasn’t adopted. The question LR asks is which of the two we prefer?
I suppose it’s all a question of taste, but the multi-lens set above (which would obviously have cost a small fortune) would definitely be my choice. It’s all a matter of taste, I suppose, and Leica has traditionally exhibited good taste. To be honest, anything would have been better than the design adopted.
But then, again, I’m not going to shell out £13,000 on a camera set which looks like someone’s scrapbook.
