Nikoniano: Sorry, the cameras are beautiful, but the price is absolutely unreal, considering the quick obsolescence in the hardware today: it is impossible (or stupid?) to pay that much, also for a legend. Toys for rich people.

and by the way, my opinion is that the demand it's low because the cost of the camera, not because the poor appeal of the old-style rangefinders. Few people can afford these cameras. If in a dream the price of a Leica magically low you'll can see if the people don't understand that appeal: you cannot biuld sufficient cameras for the demand.

Yep I got the concept, It's like a Ferrari, it is a unique item. I just say it's a very high price (and it is). And, like top end guitars, top end laptops and cars and so on these are more like precious toys than instruments (and they are). And these wonderful cameras are for rich people because if you're a poor man no rangefinder (like it or not).

Obvius if you want a Leica there's no alternative. But there's no need to find excuses, If you like it buy a Leica and enjoy!

@Carbon, from dpreview:
"..In a way the X-Pro1 has no direct competitors; its optical viewfinder and traditional stills-focused control layout sets it apart from the likes of the Sony NEX-7, and of course it's much less expensive than the camera it physically most resembles, the Leica M9-P, and operates rather differently too..".

It's difficult to pay that much just for a feeling. Anyway, I think I can find better way in the "ugly" finder of an EOS 5D Mark III spending the other half of the budget on precious L lenses. The images & performance will be good also imho.

Fuji make 1/4 price similar product, so they are not the only gamers in town. If you wish it were cheaper maybe you should agree with me: we won't say it's stupid buy 7k of black and white *only* camera? Ok let's say it's good to loose colors, but you can't say me that that man it's not rich.
