I think this is Zeiss saying not only can we make lenses that stand up well when compared with Leica glass optically, we can even price them like Leica does...

Yeah. And that's annudder one there ain't no of! I continue to fail to understand what the big deal is about Leica products! They come out with new cameras that don't have a look or feel half as good as the competition; nor the specs -- and they're $3,000 or more! What gives? And how do they get $4,000 for that lens? I see some of those newer Leica cameras that are still practically MANUAL cameras going for $3,000 and I'm like... WHAT GIVES???

Do Leica shooters use some kind of special hallucinogenic drugs the rest of us need to learn about, so we can ALL enjoy their special version of reality, or what???

A word is worth 1/1000th of a picture... Maybe that's why I use so many words!
