So if a M8 goes for 2000 EUR on ebay now and new it was around 6000 EUR, this means it lost 4000 EUR in value. This would have bought you at least 5 NEX and you would not even need to worry about the resell value but have had a new NEX every year.

but I think you inflated the initial price of the M8 considerably
it was released at under $5000
the dollar was below parity with the Euro
certainly a Leica M is not for everyone, nor have they ever been
it certainly is not an all in one photographic tool
for some folks, myself included, it is the best system for what they do

Leica bashers frequent this forum & we have thick skins by & large but I hate to see inaccuracies put forth to forward a specious argument
