You and Hogan are really wrong if you think Point and Shoots are essential for camera makers futures, it's never bothered Leica.

I didn't say that, and neither did Hogan - what was said was that it's hard to rationalize having a camera business without the volume sales of P&S cameras. Leica hardly matters in this conversation - they play in a market unique to themselves.

so you are saying essentially the same thing?

I'm sure you've noticed that Leica's pricing structure is slightly different than anyone else's, and that this makes them immune to the need for volume sales. In the normal, non-Leica world, without sales volume, it's hard for a lot of retailers to justify carrying your product line.
