I think that people have missed something: one of the reasons that Leica have been able to demand a high price is their wonderful construction and longevity - the pre-digital m's are basically cameras for life, the maintain value excellently in the secondhand market. However, one of the big differences with digital is that the technology moves very fast. That's why the 'invest in glass' mantra has developed amongst the Canon/Nikon fraternity - you buy into a lens system and update bodies every 2-5 years. How will this work with the M9? Don't get me wrong, it looks to be a wonderful piece of engineering, I'd love one, but it doesn't offer the 'camera for life' scenario of the old film cameras.
