Leica X1 makes absolutely no sense

Quote from dpreview review on Leica X1 " ...Panasonic Lumix G 20mm F1.7 ASPH, which negates one of the X1's greatest strengths - its high ISO image quality - by gathering a stop and a half more light than the X1's F2.8 Elmarit. This allows a GF1 user to set at least a stop lower ISO at any given light level, equalizing out the difference between the sensors"

There you go. I see no point in Leica either, especially with its insane price tag. X100, however, I do find appealing, but want to try before I byu. I´m not sure how the viewfinder would actually work in practice.. (Manual focus anyone?)

I´m a GF-1 user, btw. And quite happy one, although I will jump ships if something better came along.
