  2. Nice camera. Somewhat expensive and bulky - but good peformance,
    familiar and good interface and solid build quality.

    A pity you don't have loads of money to take from :)

    Just think what a brilliant camera they could make if they
    put a full size sensor into one of theese, compatible with
    the M range lenses, one day maby. ;o)-max-

    Leica is developing the digital M mount rangefinder body as we speak.
    That should be one heck of a camera..(probably at a price comparable to
    a new car).

  5. Consumer camera image quality at dSLR prices. No thanks. A 300D + 17-40 is a
    worlds better camera, and you can use the lens on a film camera or later
    dSLR. Pick up a Sigma 24/1.8 or Canon 50/1.4 for low light (and macro!)
    performance the Leica can't even dream of.

    I agree. This camera is just a collector's item for the Leica gearheads.
    The image quality is probably comparable to a $500 digital camera. The
    Nikon D70 with the kit lens and a 50mm/1.4 is what I have my sights set
    on.

  7. Actually, I bet it's the best consumer digital out there. All the current
    models have small pixels, and they're probably getting CCDs that have the
    latest fabrication improvements Sony's come up with, so it's probably the
    best of the F717/5700/A1 cameras as well.

    But it's still a consumer camera. The 300D (and D70) are in a different
    class.

    The optical performance sounds like my DX 6490.
