I have a full Leica M system which is my preferred way of doing photography
for the past 10 years. A full system of Leica M glass which I've compiled
for over a decade steadily and now not using so much in lieu of Nikons; d100
and Nikon glass.
I can do the auto everything Nikon glass thing but would like to go back to
last year. 
Rangefinder shooting.
Leica glass.

But with a digital body which is an amazing phenomenon (digital photography)

I'd certainly be amazed if such a digital camera body for my Leica M glass
either if done by Leica sometime in the far far future or Remco toys today
would cost anywhere what my D100 did which was 700 bucks shy of what a Nikon
F5 cost.

Epson are us!
