I had an interesting phone conversation with Leica yesterday. I called the corperate office to sign up for Leica Pro Service and after signing up I was asked if I would be willing to take a survey. They started out by asking what kind of work I did and then moved on to equipment that I use. After finding this out they asked: 1. Did I use a digital SLR? 2. What brand and model and was i happy with it? 3. Had I ever used the R8 or R9 and did I like them. 4. Would I be interested in a digital SLR based on the R8/9 Of course I said yes that I would love to see a digital R and thati would gladly put my Nikon D's on ebay if such a camera came to be. Thought you all might be interested.
