Leica Interview - do they think we're that dumb?

"If we had continued the M9 people would have thought 'OK, that's the old camera, I don't want the old one, I want the new one because the new one is the best'"

Do they really think we're that dumb? I would much rather have a classic M9 for 4800 Euros than this M-E which is deliberately styled to look second class.
