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.

I don't think Sony will sink Leica. NEX cameras are out there since quite some time and well, Leica can't produce cameras or lenses fast enough to keep up with demand.

They seem two brands for two different kind of uses, I don't think there is that many people doubting between acquiring a NEX or an M9.

What seems to be the case, some people purchasing NEX cameras want to use (and buy) Leica lenses, and that's good for Leica.
