Re: Depends if there's a market for it....

A mass produced, plastic version of the M8 would be easy enough to accomplish and Leica, being Leica could still probably get away with charging upwards of £2000 for it. But would such a camera sell? Or would it be popular only with a minority of film M owners who balk at the current cost of a digital M?

Also, would it dilute the Leica brand? At the moment, like it or not, if it's got Leica written on it, it must be expensive.
