I'm not sure that is what I said exactly, but perhaps I should have said not "solely" a monitary endeavor. CV makes film rangefinders ( a whole new line in the 21st century) and I would imagine it wasn't because they wanted to make as much money as possible. My point was that it'll be a company that cares about making a rangefinder camera and not a company whose sole purpose is to make as much money as possible. Its a niche product.
