The $30,000 Gold-Plated Nikon DSLR

Continuing in the tradition of taking things that are totally great in their own right and dipping them infreaking gold, couture design firm Brikk is set to release a Nikon Df camera and Nikkor 14-24 f/2.8 lens with details plated in 24K Au.

Sure, why not?

Perfect for the spendy, shutter-happy tourist looking to become burglar target numero uno, this shimmering camera kit will most certainly draw extra attention, especially considering it's estimated to sell for a cool $30 grand. Though, if you're the type of person who would drop such silly cash on a camera that typically costs a fraction of that, then you're also wise enough to insure it. Right?
