As an engineering designer used to designing for small production runs (but 
much smaller than Leica) I doubt a stylist has been used. The SL looks to me 
something which has entirely been designed to be inexpensively NC machined 
from solid since the projected production volume almost certainly would not 
have been able to fund the tooling for diecasting.

I'm almost certain I read that it's machined from a solid block of aluminum 
like the T is.
