I just wonder how much apologizing I have to do when I doubt a camera which
cost 1000 usd and is a smaller format than an M9 gets compared to an M9 as
if its going to be a better camera or something. I have to buy the camera
I sure as hell hope its not going to be better an M9!
Those poor people who used premium materials design and  manufacturing
techniques who thought they had a premium produced outdone but a company
making a consumer grade relatively cheap product?
Poor company! Oh did you say that company has been making quality premium
camera for 87 years? And its name was "Leica"?

I just don't feel like Leica needs to defend itself against cameras which
were never meant to compete with it in the first place.

By the way I'm not attacking cameras. I'm attacking the made set which puts
consumer cameras and premium cameras in the same category.
There is folks I hate to break it to you gently such a thing as a quality
product. The reason why some things cost more is not marketing.  The value
of the deutschmark. The price reflects materials and production tolerances.
Quality control.
