Leica gets out of the rangefinder body business entirely.  It seems that
other manufacturers are settling on the M mount as the industry standard
for interchangeable lens digital bodies.  Why reinvent the lens mount,
anyway?  Leica makes outstanding lenses for which there will be
increased demand as "professional grade" digital rangefinders carve a
market, so Leica survives in the rangefinder universe only as a lens
manufacturer.  Okay, re-badging bodies is always a possibility, but
Leica can survive by concentrating on the one thing they can and do
create better than anyone else, lenses.
