Re: price?

Leica gear retains value over time, particularly lenses. An equivalent 2nd hand Leica kit (M9 + Elmarit 28mm III + Summicron 50mm IV + Summarit 90mm = less than $8.000) will depreciate only in the M9 side.

Non Leica lenses lose up to 50% right after purchase, and digital cameras value usually disappears into nothingness in a couple years.

Digital is becoming a sort commodity, in which more or less all gear in any give "tech range" has sam-ish IQ quality: "cheapest to deliver" apply in such cases. The X Pro 1 is everything except cheap.

I would wait for early adopters feedback, X Pro 1 must really deliver to be worth investing in a whole new system with no future development guarantee.

Best regards,

You can't exactly argue price in this forum. You couldn't get an equivalent M9 kit for less than $10,000.


Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
