Leica lenses really are, generally speaking - worth the prices charged for them relative to the competition.  The cameras themselves have not been, for a long time.  But as liong as Leica is the only game in town where you can get a sensor that uses the whole image circle of Leica lenses, some folks will pay the freight to buy the cameras.

But what if Cosina/Voigtlander teamed with Sony, to build a Leica-mount digital camera with a state of the art full frame sensor along the lines of a Bessa R3, and sold the thing for $1500 or so?  Leica's sales of M9s and such would drop like a stone - but their lens sales would go up.

C/V already did this when they manufactured the Epson RD1

Why C/V has not released their own updated version of the Epson RD1 is a real mystery.
