Will SONY sink Leica?
Sep 10, 2011

Apologies in advance if this topic has been already beat to death; I don't have a digital Leica so I don't spend much time here.

It just seems that the new NEX cameras are incredible even with the kit lens.

Add "Leica" lenses and OMG.

All at a fraction (a small fraction) of the cost of a M9.

How in the world can Leica keep up with SONY???

Can you imagine a rebadged NEX being sold as a Leica at some point?

Looks like the future will be interesting and exciting for both companies.

Maybe a little too interesting for Leica's taste.

Not trying to bait anyone; just curious as to what this forum thinks.
