It's not for saving money per se (but I suppose that never hurts), but more 
like to see if there are some "favorite" lens that deserve a 2nd chance in 
life, so to speak. I mean don't some leicaphiles think the older M lens 
have more glow or characaters? Or that some people think the Zeiss glass 
have more warmth? I guess I am a gadget head in that sense.
