How important is a leaf shutter to you on the LX100 ii (LX200)?

I am thinking a leaf shutter makes this the defacto all in one hybrid camera in the segment.  If it retains all the good things and adds a leaf shutter like:

Canon G1X M3

Fuji X100 series

Fuji X70

Richo GRII

Fuji XF10

Only the Canon has a zoom lens (AND Canon cripples the leaf shutter by not allowing High Speed Flash with external flashes).

I think a leaf shutter would make the LX200 the leader in that photography segment (and a mic jack makes it the leader in the video segment).
