Leica has quietly released what they bill as a "new edition of a legend" some three weeks ago. The film camera M3D. Based off of the current Leica M-A, albeit with a "reverse panda" look - black with chrome dials. It's based on the original Leica M3D, which was a very limited set of customized cameras; only four were made - and explains the "-5" in the name/photo above. This time, only 16 will be produced. Furthermore, it will have a film counter reminiscent of the M2, and both a film rewind knob and smaller shutter speed dial, complete with a cutout for a Leicameter. The rewind, frame preview and film wind levers are the old style. There even appears to be a PC sync port out back, a Leicavit on the bottom and a special edition Summicron-M 50mm f/2 lens. All in all, a rather accurate reproduction - "new edition of a legend" indeed. Read more below for more details.
