Dr. Kaufmann has said that the S2 will be price-competitive, and that the
S2's technology will find its way into the M and R lines - meaning economy
of scale.  IMHO the S2's technology is Leica's future and that pricing
(also IMHO) for future products including M and R will not be as insane as
we've seen for products of the recent past.  Dr. Kaufmann is willing to be
patient, he's in this for the long run.
