I for one am glad Leica has equivalents to the Lumix brand
1

I go over to the Leica forum occasionally, as some others do, because my small cameras are LXs and like to see results from these cameras regardless of the brand on the body. Just saw a post that Leica has introduced the Leica C model in Europe, and the specs make it clear is a rebranded LF1. So it continues.

What I like is that Leica thinks highly enough of Panasonic build quality, optics, features, etc, that they agreed to and continue the relationship. And the fact that Leica agreed to allow the Leica name to be used on the Lumix lenses. (personally, I think that the one area that they don't like is Panasonic's reputation for poor repair service, which is why they offer such great service when the red dot Pannys have issues. It also is a value-added justification for the difference in price)

Just my two cents on a slow Sunday morning.
