Though I wish that I understood why the Leica CEO needs to know this.
I want to be able to truthfully say that "80% of all RFF members own at least one Leica camera" ... or similar.

Raid, I think the correct response would be (currently) that 82% of responding members own Leicas.

It would be interesting to see how the overall numbers changed with a few further questions:

If you answered NO: did you previously own a Leica? How many?

If you answered NO: do you plan to acquire a Leica (used or new)?

Whatever you answered: do you own Leica lenses you adapt to other camera bodies? M/ltm-mount lenses you adapt to other bodies?

I imagine the Leica percentages would increase with questions like these.

Hi Robert,
Yes, this is correct. I was just saying it loosely.
This not meant to be a scientifically designed survey.
I want to have a good "guesstimate" of the percentage of Leica users at RFF.

Just my M6 which I bought new in 1986. It's been my only 'good' camera until I bought an X-E1 late last year

Told a friend, as I lay me down in that six foot mahogany box, I'll be resting my head on an M2. Maybe two.

Told my wife to put a pack of cigs, a book of matches and a 6-pack of Guinness in the box with me. I'd ask for a good bottle of Irish Whiskey but my friends would dig me up the next night and swipe the whiskey.

I think that as wonderful as it is to know that 80% of RFFers own at least 1 Leica camera, from the CEO's perspective, the questions are:
A- how many are likely to buy a new Leica camera?
And
B- if you answer no to A then what single thing will change your mind?

I have an M6 and IIIf. I'd love a digital Leica, but can't justify the cost since i'm no pro.

Too many. Oldest being a 1929 Leica 1, bought used, and the latest an M6 .85 bought new in 2000. The finder was no good till Sherry K. upgraded it to MP standards. Got a bunch of old Leica glass and some asph lenses bought new. Lenses mostly great but the original hood for my 35mm Summilux asph fell apart in days and the dealer replaced it.

Would I buy a digital Leica? Only if they get the price/reliability/depreciation under control. Joe

I have a forty-year-old Leitz Pradovit projector that I talked my folks into buying back then.

I have never had a Leica camera (so I voted "No").
I have used compact, fixed-lens RFs for travel, mainly because of their small size.
Otherwise, I use SLRs for 35mm and TLRs for medium format.
