Hi Theo,

My thoughts about Leica, they should develop a cheaper body like What Soney is doing with Nex 7 and maybe further Nex8-9 etc.

They should. Just as much as Rolls Royce should make a small city car, like the Toyota Aigo. Maybe you are just looking at the wrong brand. If you like the Sony (sic), then buy a Sony. You can use your Leica lenses on it with a convertor. If you want a full rangefinder, be prepared to pay premium. Remember that doing anything mechanically these days comes at a premium: the cheap way is to build in a chip and do it in software. And a rangefinder is a very fine mechanic indeed, so hence the very high price.

The M-M price also reflects the small market Leica anticipates for a B&W only camera, obviously.

Peter.
