I am intrigued by the rangefinder, but no way am I well enough heeled to buy one unless it was an old film M3.

While it would be nice if Leica could produce an affordable rangefinder (somewhere at about the D600 price point) I think it would kill Leica's bread and butter M line and Leica would not have the production capacity to serve a low end market without using a proxy like Panasonic to produce it.

A low cost rangefinder just does not fit the Leica marketing model.
