    Does anybody think Leica were rather arogant in not changing the naming sceme for Ms?

    Forget the issue of whether or not they should have started a new naming scheme, do you think Leica were rather arrogant to think they could never or need to improve on the M7?

    Or the M2.

    Seeing as Leica has manufactured both analog and digital cameras under the M prefix, I can't see any reason why they shouldn't be able to keep mixing the two - if there ever is another analog M, there's no reason why they shouldn't be able to call it the, say, M13 or something like that. Or am I completely missing your point?

    With the release of the M8/M9, Leica has only gotten more arrogant.

    It tends to go with the territory that those cameras attract.

    Me personally, I'm cool with my M4 and pre-ASPH Summicron 35.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    In the grand scheme of things I'm sure Leica not only knows or can justify how they decide to name their product line. I don't think its up to people who can't be as detailed oriented as Leica.

    If they waited a couple revs they could do another of their endless special editions. It could be, oh I don't know, black maybe. Call it the MI5.

    Years ago I used an M60, it would blow any of the others mentioned away.

    Walk softly and carry lots of ammo.
