    Your beater Sinar F1 just went from being worth $200 to $10,000 on fleabay. Just use a red sharpie to make a nice Leica dot.

    Maybe the other way around. Seems like even a Sinaron lens cap once cost more than the average Leica. Somewhere I have an old Sinar
    advertising plastic clothespin to hold up something - maybe signage or corners of a darkcloth - who knows? But it should be worth several
    hundred dollars on EBay with the description of "RARE", "collectible", "genuine Sinar object prior to wimpy little Leica acquisition" etc.

    How can it complete what it does not have? There are no MF cameras in the stable.

    The idea of medium format is their digital back. But Leica did in fact market a complete med format digi SLR system. I'd imagine it has fiancially
    bellyflopped by now, just like Sinar's ultra-expensive servo-controlled view cameras or early Epolux entry into color digital capture. Maybe they can combine the worst ideas of both companies. ... Meanwhile, I've replaced most of my functional Sinar system with a vintage 60's Sinar Norma. Still the classic.

    Not like Sinar is a huge seller, but there is a market. And now Leica has everything from compacts to large format - and everything in between.

    You sure know Leica has a MF camera already?

    Well, Sinar was the other Red Dot company.
