What happened to the Leica M8? They change hands for £1000 to £1500. Uses Leica M lenses etc!

Why design a new APS-C?

That's such a great idea. If such a thing were available for around $2500, I'd never have bought the A7r.

The only real issue with the M8 is the inability to get some parts for it should it fail.

Well, that and perhaps ISO performance is a little limited. It would be nice to have usable ISO to 3200 or higher at times.

That's a pretty big deal to me when you still have to shell out a fair amount for an M8, considering how old it is. I did that once before with an R-D1, which has never failed on me, but I wanted something new this time around. I do think the M8 has spectacular IQ at lower ISO's and I've been tempted many many times.
