haven't sold my m9 yet simply because i have two great lenses i don't want to give up. silly, eh? yes, i can see myself walking around with two rx1s (different focal lengths) around my neck. it's actually reminiscent of the days when japanese turistas could be seen on the trains of europe wreathed in three film cameras, each with its own prime lens. talk about retro!

I'm with you on this.  If Sony releases an RX1 with a fixed 75 or 85mm lens, I will think very hard about getting it.

On the subject of Leica, it's no secret that their digital cameras have always lagged behind those of the Japanese manufacturers.  Basically, Leica digital M's exist to carry Leica lenses, and people who treasure their Leica glass simply have to put up with the weaknesses of the cameras.
