And - As part of one of the big dealer ads in the latest Shutterbug - it was either Wall Street Camera or Tamarkin (I think it was WSC) there was a commentary in which they discussed Leica's vaporware reputation.,..as in the R8 motor drive and the difficulty of getting the 90 AP0 M.... If major dealers are commenting IN A PRINT AD about this kind of thing, Leica is in BIG trouble and had better sit up and take notice...and not just by having sales in Germany on R8s....Part of what killed Apple as a major player in the PC arena (and I am NOT commenting on which computer system is best) is that they couldn't market worth a damn. >> This kind of talk is pure blasphemy for anyone to be critical of Solms Leica. The writer should have his hands washed out with soap!
