It is not a rebranded Leica.

It is a Leica special limited edition, limited to 10 units only.

Leica is undergoing changes. It has killed off its previous R series by not making a digital SLR able to use the same R mount.

The closest they got to digital R series SLR was Leica DMR digital back for the Leica R8/R9 film cameras. It has been discontinued.

Th new Leica SLR S2 is a bigger format 37.5 megapixel 30x45mm sensor. With a very high price.

Leica M digital cameras are disadvantaged by not having autofocus.

So what is left is the marketing mystique and brand image.

The moral of the story is that before you sell your used cameras at the BnS section.
Paste a hello kitty sticker on it :bsmilie:
