About me:

I have been fortunate and financially able to retire early. Now being a few years older, I just take life one day at a time and with no worries. Admittedly, I'm just a happy vacation and family snapshooter with no photographic skills at all, and I really don't care. I have no ego.
I'm not one of those self-centered, miserable, lacking in any social skills, socially isolated chaps lurking the forums spewing rude and inappropriate comments on others. You know who they are. But I really appreciate all the helpful people here who offer positive comments and suggestions.
I'm here to learn more about photography. And to appreciate images taken by others. Photography is just a hobby for me, and my life is not centered around it. That's it.

It's too much money for what it offers, IMO.
Wonder what the actual street price will be once the early adopters get theirs.

Does the MKII finally fixed the dust in lens issue that plagued the original GR?

Needs a touchscreen LCD to set pinpoint focus quicker then it's outdated D pad.
Maybe in the X100TMK2.

Is that what causes the famous "Leica Look"?

Pre-ordered it.
Hard disk space is cheap.

caspia: I am "old school", being 71.
I owned many cameras (Exakta Varex to a Nikon F4S) and took thousands of photographs.
Photography has changed enormously over the last fifteen years. I bought a Leica Digilux 2 (part exchanging the Nikon 4 S + lenses. Wow! Five Megapixels!
It took remarkable photos despite the mongers who claimed that digital would never beat film quality...
The nub, is that with a slow camera and an even slower person handling it, one can still take great photos. Today, speed appears to be of the essence. Photos taken at arm´s length over a crowd....catching movement.... etc.
What´s the hurry? Cartier-Bresson´s photos are masterpieces of timing but in the artistic sense. Granted we are not geniuses like he was, but so what?
If you want to just take photos, use your mobile. If you want to record photos for posterity, buy a decent camera. If you want to savour the pleasure of taking photographs, buy a Leica. I envy all that can afford one but relish in their enjoyment.

I have a low milage mint Digilux 2 I would like to donate to an aspiring photography student. Sensor replaced by Leica.

Regards,
Lena

Glen Barrington: When I was 20, I would have killed for a Leica, but now that I'll be turning 65 in a week, I find, oddly, I have absolutely zero interest in owning a Leica. I don't need a beautiful, well built, reasonably competent, digital camera that is obsolete within 2 months of its release.

I feel I can get by with an uglier, less well built, but still reasonably competent camera that is obsolete within 2 months of its release.

Besides, most of my friends who would likely be impressed with my owning a Leica are either dead or confused by my inability to give up the passions of my adolescence. A couple are just confused.

My new E-M10 will likely last until I'm dead. And after that, it won't matter much, will it?

When do you plan on dying? ;)

How is it that many "own it" or say they've " had it " when it hasn't even been released yet?
I don't understand how that could be so.

Why did they leave touch screen and built in flash off this camera?

I think it will be a great camera for taking selfies. :)

Out of curiosity how many of you "serious" photographers take selfies?

Because some reviewers or pros get loaned samples before the actual release date to your ,pubic , and. Then have to return the product back.

OP was fortunate to only have a few nicks and bruises, and lost only his camera and not his life.

Years ago, I witnessed a photographer with a large format camera on tripod in Yosemite National Park, California, who was standing on a rock in the river, with his head under the dark cloth. He lost his footing on the wet rock, slipped , and was swept down river in the rapids. Camera and all. He drowned. Unfortunate accident.
Sh*t happens.
