Poll. Would you buy a Leica Digital M?


Recommended Posts

Why don't we have a quick check?


Let's say the digital M comes out at the end of the year with the

mooted features: 10.5Mp, 1.33 crop sensor etc. Built in Germany to the

usual Leica standards. Let's say the body price is $4,995 for sake of



Please just say "yes" or "no" as the 1st word of your response if you

have more to say. That'll make it easier to count.

No. I'm waiting to see the specks:


1. Will the digital sensor be upgradeable? When the next generation of 18-20 mega pixel digital cameras come out, will I need to buy another expensive digital M body?


2. How much will I have to pay for Leica's 15mm lens (so I can get my 21mm perspective back against the 1.33x frame)? I refuse to buy a $3,500+ lens that doesn't couple to the RF!


3. How will the digital sensor specifically handle fast lenses? (Will they vignette?)


4. A-la-carte options?

if it comes out in BP edition with engraved Leica script, similar proportions to a

traditional M series (bar M5 of course), built to last with upgradeable sensor than YES.


if it looks like a plastic toy, ergonomically sucks, and breaks if a phat kid steps on it - No
