It's only ok becuase Penn survived, if we lost Penn and got 'The Leica Store' as the only replacement it would have been tragic. I agree with Barry's comment about the K St lawyers/diplomats being the target audience. The preview articles I've read look like it will be a very high end showcase, pricey, exclusive... all those adjectives. I also saw something about there being a studio of sorts in the back where they will let potential buyers (investors) demo a wide range of Leica gear. Despite the astronomic prices I do think that is cool.

I might have to poke my head in there with my Canonet the opening weekend just to drool a bit...
