>> The idea of loaning it to the end of the warranty period would
constitute fraud, no?  <<
I don't see why loaning a camera would constitute fraud.  Everything's
on the level here.  The camera IS (or would be, since it's theorietical)
mine until the end of the warranty period, at which time I would turn
over the ownership.

>> But it always comes down to this, for me, is it honest with Leica, a
company we all supposedly care about? <<
It is honest with everybody.  It won't keep me awake at night, let me
tell you that.  I keep Leica alive buy paying the prices that Leica
asks.  And I'm going to keep doing so as long as I think that what I'm
getting is worth what I'm paying for.  If Leica wants to terminate my
passport warranty the moment I loan the camera to somebody, it had
better refund me the corresponding amount.  I'm not going to give up my
hard-earned money because I "care about" Leica.  Leica is my equipment,
not my religion.
