I'm only interested if it does have a rangefinder. Otherwise why spend the extra on a Leica? To me, the point of a Leica IS the rangefinder mechanism and the simplicty, otherwise there are million other bodies that you can mount m lenses on. I'd love this if it's under 3k. DOesn't need to be full frame either. Having shot with an R-D1 for years, it's a little awkward, but worth it.

But the rangefinder mechanism is not simple. It is complex, high precision, and difficult and expensive to manufacture.

(The same applies to the mirror and pentaprism in an SLR.)
