In a message dated 98-05-21 14:18:15 EDT, you write:

<< I would also like to say that I would not support a Leica body along the
 lines of the Contax AX.  While it is an interesting piece of machinery, I
 think its design is not practical as it is too big. >>

If Leica went AF, I think something similar to the AX design would make
existing R users happy.  IMHO, I think most R users would use an AF body as a
second body.  Maybe the AX architecture could be done in a slimmer package??
How may R users would like to replace their small fortune in Leica lenses to
go AF??
