While I love the M9, I love color, and I actually like chimping... I can honestly see the appeal in this. I love stripped down objects that just get to the point. I would say that half the people using film use it because they like film cameras better than digital (as opposed to using film for its unique properties). If Leica can make a camera that is more like its film cameras and surpass the benchmark set by the Epson in this regard, they could have a niche winner. Of all of the companies out there, Leica is in the position to do this and succeed. Remember, unlike most other camera manufactuers, Leica can make money while not having to sell huge volume.
