Maybe Leica should make a entry line that uses screwmount lenses, like
the BESSA-R.
The glass could be a generation behind the M series, basicly on the same
of the Cosina stuff. The pros and well heeled amateurs would probaly
still buy the
M line and if they sold tons of the screwmount cameras they would make
up for
canibalized sales from the M line.
