    This, then, is the extent of the problem....

    My poor old MiniTrekker REALLY looks like that!

    Ah - I take it that is, or rather should be, the usual Lowepro black? It's looking a distinctly unhealthy purple! :-(

    Ah! On this (calibrated) monitor, I retract that. It previously looked a bit magenta - now it's purple - mine DOESN'T look like that! Good grief!

    Yes it's meant to be black... "they all do that, sir"

    That's absurdly coloured. I'd get a better result from my mobile phone.

    The problem is not incorrectable, but of course it needs a proper fix from Leica.

    I bashed this off quickly using PS Replace Colour command. Edit: replaced by a better version

    I apologise for the flippancy - it's a serious business - but after reading through that LCU thread it occurred to me that, well, it is an up-market camera, after all - maybe you're just not meant to photograph people wearing cheap and nasty polyester suits! ;-)

    And with that said, I am getting my (best natural fibre) coat. :)

    For anyone who might be interested, I've just posted my own little version of this test using some Lowepro gear and other synthetic black stuff, with various Nikon DSLRs, over in the Nikon forum - here. I can't be sure that my Lowepro bags have exactly the same fabric as Mark's (there are clearly different IR responses to fabrics on the same bags in my shots) but it might be of interest even so.
