Honestly, I am not sure what side is the "technical purity" side. I can say (again) that in 2015, technical mastery TODAY is the generation of algorithms, etc. to augment a quality, but production-affordable component into a finished product, not slide-ruling a piece of molten sand into submission.
The Q is Leica's first proper step into not just a viable, but an absolutely sustainable future as a modern company.
