Leica digital bodies are disposable. The lenses are forever.
Solid statement! But
My only worthy Leica lens is Summarit-M 35 2.5, which was something like 1200 USD new.
RF lenses have no electronics on them. Nothing which could get shortened. And they are not wide open to the water. I had used Jupiter-3 under rain, it is OK.
Also, some of Leitz lenses are not even life time trouble free. Even made in eighties lenses have separation issues. Might sounds fixable, but not in these days.
