Your question made me think about another question.

Why hasn't Leica rebadged a Panasonic M4/3 camera as a Leica yet?

There was a lot of talk about rebadging a GF-1 back inthe day. Speculaton was that Leica didn't want to impact prices of used M8's. The crop factor wasn't that much different.

The crop factor was 1.3 for Leica vs. 2.0 for M43, and that makes a hell of a difference for most people. Leica people would not, and I repeat not, be satisfied with the DOF of a 2.0 crop system.

That's the explanation of Leica not joining M43.
