The CL is way out of my price range for such a camera. Only Fuji & Canon for me.

If I were wealthy, I'd buy a CL and every other Leica just to play with.

Most wealthy people I know are wealthy because they are smart with their money. Buying a basic APS-C camera at 3-4x the price everyone else charges is not exactly smart shopping. Ditto for the lenses. $1299 for a 18-55 f3.5-5.6 kit lens or mediocre 18mm f2.8?

People with so much money they don't need to think about prices, would be shopping special edition M series bodies, not this APS-C system.

And yet, so many Leica owners are wealthy people. Fathom that.

Because unlike many Canikosoji-folks of gear forums, Leica-owners tend to stick to one body for a long period of time, instead of panicking about their 5-month-old-camera getting totally obsolete because a new model is there with some new gimmick on it and 0.01% improvement
