    - Has a 24mp CMOS sensor instead of CCD. This will be a real
    disappointment to Leica M9 users who waxed lyrically about the
    "advantage" of CCD sensors over the CMOS sensors ordinary folk were
    forced to suffer, for the "je ne sais quois" quality (which are counter
    to any objective testing).
    - Has not one but two electronic focus conformation aids, surely not
    needed when the rangefinder system has been the definition of
    "perfection" for about a century.
    - Shoots 1080p video, just like an iPhone.
    - Only $7000 (body only)

    Yes, it's the Olympus VF2, unchanged except for the branding and a
    much higher price. The VF2 also fits the Leica X2 digital p&s.
