Hi Howard,

I'm in favour of *anything* Leica does to stay viable and continuing 
production of the glass and (film) cameras I prefer to use. I was sorry to 
see Zeiss steal a march on them by building great lenses for other cameras 
such as Nikon.

I'm still hoping that Leica will commence puting their optical and image 
expertise to work in that direction soon.
