Haha that's quite good.

Sigma SD9, very good camera within very limited circumstances.
Contax Digital, actually, it's a 6mp DCS14n that's priced like a 1Ds.
Pentax *ist D, how do you market something you can't pronounce?
Kodak DCS14n, ooh don't even start.
Canon's, cheaper yes, better?
Nikon, last year's news is good news.
Minolta, forget digital, APS is the way!

Leica, technology, what's that?
Leica, autofocus, what's that?
Leica, sophisticated metering, what's that?
Leica, motor drive, what's that?
Leica, batteries, what's that?
Leica, reasonably priced? What the $£"%$£^% are you talking about?

You sure? Leica FSLRs are not that fantastic to begin with, so I'd rather they concentrate on something like a M7 Digital instead. :)

Their R series are the SLRs. M series are their rangefinders. Just like their RFs, their SLRs are backward in technology. An used R6 costs about $1k, but is a lesser performer than say a FM3a at slightly below $1k new. :)

Wah, imagine having to do a crank on a digital camera....

hey, FM2 does not have weak metering. You just have to know how to use the 60/40 centre weighted metering properly. :)
