Hunter_C: Can anybody tell me why Leica cams are SO EXPENSIVE???

What makes you think that the Leica camera is expensive?

Please show me a full format camera with 47MP and a correspondingly fast 28mm fixed focal length, a brilliant 3.6MP viewfinder and OIS/IBIS, which is great value for money in this combination.

As a former Olympus customer of the 1980s with an extensive camera system and many optics, we know from our own experience how Olympus deals with crises in their own camera business: say nothing exactly, deny nothing precisely and only wax-soft general blabla. And slowly but surely let everything fall asleep. They are not doing this for the first time, in other product areas they did the same at the end of the 90s.
As a customer, you can then watch the system slowly die. Hope dies last, but it dies.
I have too often been blamed as a customer by Olympus for giving money on products or promises from this company. If you're attentive, you'll notice exactly how Olympus is playing around with its own communications. "Imaging" is always referred to only as a connection with medical technology and they won't even explicitly name the camera business as such.

I only feel sorry for all the fanboys. Sad, but that's how Olympus has been handling things for decades when they get out of a segment.
