Makes no sense to mee.

Like I said.

The incredibly few people who want a rangefinder will buy a rangefinder. If people want a relatively small, high IQ package with good controls and decent AF, how do you appeal to them by making a rangefinder?

They could include AF in a rangefinder body. This camera is presumably supposed to appeal to people who like manual controls and a tactile shooting experience. Seems like a failure that they botched the MF.
