I got to play with one today at my local Leica shop - it definitely 
handles and looks like a Leica - but there's something missing, though 
I'm not quite sure what, maybe the feel of
Vulcanite or leather resting on my nose (I'm left eyed too).  Could be 
the soft and subdued click followed by the sigh of the mechanics of a 
film Leica is missing too. Any way it didn't want me to get out my Visa.

The quote from Nick sounds like fringing to me, means that something is 
off track at the sensor edges for moderate (in relation to sensor size) 
wide angle lenses. Is the coding initiating something like DxO in the 
software behind our backs?
