It is about time Leica introduced live view. I have the greatest respect for people who shoot with 90 and 135 mm rangefinder lenses with the coupled rangefinder and get good results. But using these lenses on live view is so much easier. Leica is not about the superb lenses or the funky rangefinder, it is about the photographers who make the system shine. Canon would not make an ff mirrorless, neither would Nikon or Sony. So Leica may have to do it. Leica would be the most conservative and the most forward looking company if it were to retain the rangefinder and add live view. Is this technically feasible, by the way?
