What Next?????!!!!!! Why bother? The day is near when we will not need to use our creative brains, can nobody see this coming? What happened to the days when we took pride it the photos we captured?

I really feel this is killing creativity and I hope others feel the same.

darthmuller: I think this camera and the Fuji camera range still misses the 'ultimate mark'.
We all want one thing and that is: compact full frame camera with 3 really decent lenses (24, 50 & 90). We would all shut up and just go back to good old school photography like the work of Bresson. They are all close, but we all know we really want that full 35mm frame at +/- 18-20mp and great iso performance up to 6400. Could you imagine the images we could create with such a tool!!!?

Ultimate documentary camera with a 50mm 1.4 and would be even better with leaf shutter lenses, we could only dream of such a beast.

I love Leica, but lets face it: most of their products are even too expensive for most working pros to justify spending that amount of $$$$. It has always been a connoisseur's camera brand and Leica intends on keeping it that way. Japan was the country that brought great quality, functionality and top technology at an affordable price, that is why they rule the world in camera development.
Why should a simple mirror-less camera be any more expensive than a 5D? I would definitely have one as a back-up to my SLR. And I think it would boom in popularity very quickly. You watch, it is coming sooner than you think. Maybe even Canon or Nikon is going to be the first to launch a new range of full frame compact cameras. Leica M lenses are second to none but at what price!!!!? Any of the good lens companies should be able to price primes at between $600-1000. Why not? they already make great primes at cheaper prices. Nobody wants another Leica M like camera.
