The body and special 50/2 Summicron are 24-carat gold plated. They were offered for sale for US$10,000 each by the Chulalongkorn University Development Foundation, the funds to be used for environmental projects in Thailand. Serial numbers 2176001 to 2176700. As can be seen in the picture below, the camera, wooden presentation case, and the box, are all quite beautifully done.

Gold camera? Why? I wonder if I were rich, would I do things like that. Like Lil' John and his jewel studded chalice. So goofy.

Nah... since he would then be eligible for bulk purchase discount. Close but no cigar.
