EXCELLENT satire aside...

Laugh all you want, folks, but if the specs are true, this Leica effort is a
pretty impressive package for the price. The lens is faster than most in the
class, what appears to be a hefty focusing ring is very a very nice
improvement over most of the competition. And, dare I say it - and I
recognize this is purely a matter of personal taste - I kind of like the
design - precisely because it is a throw back to the Argus "brick," and
because it bears a vague resemblance to a film camera of yore.

I'd be the last to suggest that the appearance has a damn thing to do with
its value as a photographic tool - but it looks pretty interesting as a
photographic tool for someone who doesn't want to jump into digital with
both feet and an empty wallet.

LOL!  Now I know why they discarded the body grip from the Lumix!
