This is true as far as I know. There's a particular store here in Montreal (photography dead zone) selling Leica gear and I asked him one day if he actually sells any of the digital Leica stuff, particularly considering how expensive the latest incarnations of the M lenses are. He told me he honestly sells more than he can deliver and things are backordered, and that the last Leica product he remembers being in such demand was the M4.

Anyhow my point was only that Kodak can indeed still come up with leading-edge ideas.
