A. All Leica M cameras are mirror less.

B. nobody that is an M shooter is being bled off anywhere.

C. The more plastic trash that comes along that will take M lenses sells more M lenses.

The last point is the important one. Even if sales of Leica camera bodies dwindle to nothing, Leitz can still sell lenses. They are in a similar position to Zeiss, except that they need do nothing new as the M mount lenses already work on M 4/3, E mount, etc.

And indeed Leitz is already licensing lens technology to Panasonic.

Hasselblad, on the other hand, have nothing to offer in the future, as they make neither lenses nor sensors.
