Not a chance in hell of that happening. Because there is nothing iconic
about Leica digital. The IIIs and Ms were iconic. For anyone who know
anything about photography, those bodies say 'HCB!W. Eugene Smith! Larry
Burroughs! LIFE! LOOK! The Golden Age of 35mm Photography!" But the
truth is, no matter what kind of Germinglish PR bullshit the folks in
Solms churn out, the Digilux is just another Japanese digital P&S with a
red dot slapped on it, sort of digital transvestite; it may be dressed
to look like a Leica, but it forgot to shave its legs. ;-)

I wonder how long it will be before the iconic shape of a Leica is that
of a Digilux and not an M3 or IIIc.
