You have summed up Leica perfectly. This new "T" is just another form of the special issue Hermes M9. A dressed up  camera designed and priced  for the wealthy, casual photographer.  Asian manufacturers have so far surpassed Leica in terms of innovation that it would be useless for Leica to compete on that level. So it has positioned itself, as you succinctly put it, as the boutique camera manufacturer. 40 minutes worth of polishing a solid block of aluminum creates a beautiful, stylish body. It does nothing for image quality. I think it would be fun to shoot as a vacation camera but at those prices  I'll have to continue to just think about it a long while more.
