Maybe that's not such a silly idea. Approach an importer from some little country like the Cook islands or something. Offer them more Leica business than they've done in the last 30 years in exchange for near factory prices. Bypass the local distributor AND retailer. Now THIS is a really interesting idea. Do any of you serious Leicaphiles know what the standard retail markup is? I know it varies, but not by much. Is the margin great enough so that we could get a serious discount from someone who doesn't do much Leica business?
