Leica only makes so many M6s a year. They sell all of them. To increase
production numbers, they'd probably have to lower quality control. There's
no guarantee more people would buy them anyway.

What's wrong with this picture?

The M6 doesn't need a G antidote. They are as different as a dump truck and
a Porsche. Two different machines for different users.
