Subject: Re: [Leica] your opinion about G2

I would classify the G2 as an "interchangeable-lens point-and-shoot"
rather than a high-tech Leica M.  Admittedly there are some features
which I would welcome on an upcoming Leica (notably the zooming, long
eye-relief finder and high flash-sync speed) but the lack of  a
*convenient* manual-focus rangefinder, DOF scales on the lenses, 135mm
lens, or any super-speed optics tend to narrow its scope of possible
applications compared to the Leica.
