That would be add the 1.25 or new 1.4 magnification eyepiece. I can't help
you with the money part ;-) 

Maike Harbets speaks on the S2. .... So we will drop down this technology to
our other systems.
Our priority is to modernise the R system which will be in the end an R10,

Well, if it's any consolation, the last time I looked through an M8 finder,
it seemed harder to focus than my M3.  I've never liked the VF of the M2 or
later models as much.  (If I had the money) I'd like to have a digital Leica
with the M3 viewfinder magnification.
