In comparison, .... Sony A7/A7r with Carl Zeiss lenses, Fujifilm X with ....

The answer is : For Leica - as a stepping stone.

My prediction is that in three years' time, there will be 3 full frame mirrorless systems (AF and not counting the M): SONY A with Zeiss lenses / Fujifilm / Leica.

By the look of it, all manufacturers going for FF mirrorless will firstly experiment with APS-C format (actually, they started initially with APS-C fixed lens DC). Get the know-how on the hardware and software in a lesser product first, then stick a FF sensor into the package.

So, whether to buy the Leica T or not, one should still admire Leica's courage to go forward with the grand plan on their AF system, instead of staying with the current product lines.  If you wouldn't mind parting with a couple of thousand Euros, then reward such courage with a purchase. Otherwise, one could always congratulate the brave old company which still has a vision.
