Re: Leica should NOT develop a cheaper body!!!!! (Large Image!)

Leica should first concentrate on catching up with the present state of the technology; improve dependability/ reliability of their cameras, while opening boutiqes should establish more service stations to stop sending cameras to Solms to take weeks sometimes months. The year 2012 has seen cameras with 24MP sensors, ISO 12800 usable output to be offered for $700 together with zoom; these give us some hints about what the year 2013 might bring. Digital photography is improving in leaps these months.. Leica is not being used anymore by the ones who made Leica what it was; it's not the choice of photographers let alone the photojournalists in our day. Slowly even the members of such forums are migrating to some other brands.

The proof of the pudding is in the eating. This is a JPEG (not RAW!) out of a camera costing $3.300 and taken with a zoom (!).. Inquire yourself whether you'd like to obtain this IQ from your Leica or not. And then start pondering about how much you are ready to pay for such a Leica.

The above are from one who has been using Leicas since 1963 and still owning more than a dozen.
