As the newly-minted editor of a national magazine, I recently had the opportunity to
assign a story to a photographer who used a D1x. The results were certainly good
enough for us to spread over two pages on glossy paper - but lacking the typical
Leica sparkle, IMHO. 
The photographer spoke highly of the great practicality of seeing his results on the
spot, a la Polaroid back (which I do not think Leica has offered either). 
I was not tempted away from my Leicas by the results I saw, but the job was done and
the man got paid for his work.
