You could have a Live view camera for the M serious just like the D Lux 3
which is out now and I'd love to use but the sensor is just a tad small.
I also love the idea that its got that 16-9 TV format.
An elegant camera. 
No viewfinder. Its not needed. Just shoot it hail Mary style it works fine.

An M made that way would be brilliant.
I'd buy one. With a bigger chip size as possible hopefully 24x36.
Maybe 20x36 or similar wide format.
