I came accross this the other day, http://us.leica-camera.com/photography/m_system/accessories/tripod_accessories/10271.html Since I already have a Sirui tripod that's almost identical to leica's new tripod (except it's aluminum not carbon fiber), I'm not really that interested in it. The leica ball heads look nicer than my Sirui ball head and I like how the larger leica ball head has a fixed tilting position. I saw a internet rumor indicating the tripod and one of the ball heads would run about $1K, which doesn't suprise me since it's carbon fiber and leica. based on the attached link and the fact there's a separate sku for the case for the tripod, I'm guessing you will have to pay extra for the case (which if true I'm suprised. I have the leica table tripod and ball head, which I like a lot but I rarely use it.
