I agree but I've heard that Leica lost money on SL/2's.   I consider myself
fortunate to have been able to buy a brand new SL/2 when I was on temporary
assignment in Germany.   I wouldn't trade it for anything (but of course I
also have a high numbered M3).

considered a blunder from which they have only recently (and only partially)
recovered, in the R8.
