If this thing is reasonably priced it might be worth checking out. So far I haven't been too impressed with many of the 4/3-mirrorless cameras. That's not to say they are bad cameras, just not something for me. The issue with Leica coming out with a camera in this area of competition is that little red dot you pay for. If this is priced $1500 USD or over I would much rather just get the fixed focal length on the x100 and just use that as my quick, semi-small camera. It's a huge bonus that the x100 is a rangefinder too, if this new Leica doesn't have a viewfinder built on to it and it's still priced over $1500 with an extra $200 for a hotshoe VF... NO THANKS. Leica makes great cameras but they are tough to sell to people that aren't just loaded with cash.
Very nice shot. I personally think this one should have gotten first.
