Leica, even on the M9, has been criticized for using old parts. So this is not a surprise.

As silly as it seems I wonder if the reason for the old screen is they had a great many left over from X1 production?

Had Leica bumped speed up to 2.0 and updated the screen they would have eliminated perhaps 85% of the "letdown" complaints. They were sharp enough not to suggest a price tag of $3000. Keeping the cost pretty much the same as the X1 was a smart move.
