Wow. I have a Leica M and like it a lot despite its lack of digital sophistication and general slowness (sometimes by the time it comes on the shot is gone). Manual focus, no program mode..makes me act like a real photographer. But, I am very concerned about Leica's reputation. Hand made, hand inspected. etc. And... they send a review model to you WITHOUT A BATTERY ? Wow. Would have been embarrassing for Nikon, but a MAJOR mistake for Leica. I mean. ...Wow.
