Little does Coenen know that there is a taboo/stigma associated with buying used/second hand in certain cultures. By not offering (I am not saying they should or should not) an entry level model, Leica is turning away many potential customers. This is where Cosina/Voigtlander have succeeded and I expect the Zeiss Ikon camera and lenses will accomplish the same.
