    That's true it's the law of diminishing returns.

    True, but it's a return none-the-less, so any business that considers itself an upscale vendor must chase it. The only other path is the race to the bottom, a la Walmart and The Dollar Store business plan. (I once broke a pair of dykes with my bare hand. They came from the $0.99 cent bin at my local Rexall Drug store.)

    hi umut

    like most new leica stuff, i bet it makes beautiful images.
    color rendition and local/general contrast are probably perfect. ...
    and worth every penny they charge for it.

    the thing about leica equipment is that the people who complain about it the most
    ( being expensive, boutique, not worth the $$, not as high quality as people say &c )
    can't afford the equipment or don't want it anyways ...

    have you gone to RFF to see what the people there say about it ?
    i'm guessing different things than apug community, IMNSHO
    80% of the people here are bottom feeders and think 200$ for a 1800$ camera is too much
    its obvious they think 7000$ for a 200$ lens is too much too, isn't it

    YMMV of course !
    im empty, good luck

    He must be from up north. The first time I heard a pair of diagonal cutters referred to by that vernacular was by inlaws from Rochester.

    Worry not. The last thing anybody would ever accuse me of being, is one of the PC Police.

    C'mon guys, wire cutters.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Yeah, but are they APO wire cutters? HUGE difference.
