Anyway enough discussion of digital problems, let the digital sites deal with this stuff. I just hated to see digital pull Leica down.
I see this just the opposite. By creating a digital version of the classic rangefinder, Leica are extending and expanding the classic Leica image, and can generate a revenue stream that can help support the film based cameras they still produce. It also helps ensure the continued availability of great Leica lenses. Plenty of working photographers "have" to use digital because their clients demand it, so to get work, you have to do what the client wants.
