OT For those who wanted to pay for fewer features ...

Once again Leica provides the comic relief. I've been chuckling since
they announced this earlier in the afternoon (please don't ask why I
was waiting for it).

The M-E looks for all the World to be an M9. Maybe it's missing a few
things, but essentially that's what it is. So what Leica is saying to
all the people that bought the M9 is:

"your camera is really f***ing underspec'd, but we didn't want to tell
you until now, when we're releasing an upgrade with more features
(that $500 cameras from other makers have had for years). Oh, and
we're going to now sell the M9 under a different name for $1,500 less
than you paid for yours. Thanks for being a loyal sucker."

I'd heard there was a shortage of brass in the market and now I see
where it went.
