Where do you get $1000? I see $400 now or $600 when the rebate kicks in?
unless there are already price drops plus the upcoming rebates...I'm
comparing new bodies w/ 3yr passport warrantys...

IMO AE is worth that amount if I was making my initial investment into Leica
or getting a second body. All the extras you want are meaningless in the
comparison because they aren't offered. So the question is are the actual
differences worth the $$. Although you say it's not about the $$ if you went
into a store and the M7 was $400 more than the M6 would you buy it or not
due to it not having the extra functionality you wanted... Basically
wondering if you find the AE any value at all or none...
