Indeed. Your point is well received Jeff. In my mind Leica always had this traditional feel that they liked to bank on and now they are changing a lot. Kind of like people and Porches 911's where the subject of changes and variations can bring people on one side or the other. I am guessing more and more camera companies will be heading in this direction with their non SLR cameras so its just the way of the future to be accepted as such.
PS. Can you imagine non corrected view on an SLR? Fisheye like distortions making people dizzy!
