Leaving aside the litigious question (although NZ must have some pretty hard assed laws if this would qualify) I think Leica are perfectly fine with what they have done. One of the benefits for me of the general Leica layout is that you can see aperture, shutter speed, focal length and focus distance/DOF at a glance and I think that seeing that focal length in FF equivalents makes the most sense.

Is it technically 100% accurate? Maybe, maybe not but I think for the people who will use this camera it will be not be misleading. After all who will use a £2,000 plus camera, either photography enthusiasts who will know the difference or the trophy girlfriends of wealthy guys who will neither know about nor care about the difference as long as it's a Leica and looks cute.

The Leica legal team can sleep happily at night.
