I agree, but I think the S3 tanked, because it wasn't enough camera for the 
It doesn't even have a parallax corrected viewfinder. You can also find a 
real S3 for 
less money. The S3 simply doesn't have the same mystique.

I believe the SP may be a different story. It's the Nikon RF everyone wants. 
if Leica had stopped making M cameras 30 years ago and suddenly decided to 
reissue the M4.

A beat up chrome SP starts at $2500, but the price of an original black 
paint model (forget about mint)
makes the re-issue almost look like a bargain.

A bit surprising after hearing that they lost so much money on the S3
and that the S3 was moving so slowly in sales.
