that sense isn't too far out of line.

Yes, but the 30D worked and did not have to be returned 4 times by the 
majority of users.  Also if Leica had come out with a 1.5x factor and the 
reliability of its digital M were this poor the customers would be outside 
their doors 
with torches and rope to hang someone.  I think from what i have read about 
RD-1, maybe Leica was right, has really waited until the right time to get 
out their digital M.  Time will tell.  If I figure out how to get the money, 
win the Lotto, I will run down to the local Leica Dealer and order a DMR
