I reckon if I sell all the wife and kids' possessions, and maybe mug a few old ladies, I might just make it.

It's not me going soft, it's just I reckon their possessions may fetch more. They could be good for a memory card or two though.

I want one too, and did you see the X1, sexy and practical.

35mm lens, 12mp APS sensor, fits in pocket, has viewfinder that clips on and did you see how they fitted in the po-up flash. Sexy and retro at the same time.

Now about that $2,000 price tag. If it were not for that you would hear the Sigma and Olympus bubbles popping.

But the M9 love the idea. anyone got an old M8 that wants a new home?

Okay, I don't get it. Is this a nostalgia thing?

People who shoot Leica rangefinders won't get it as there's nowhere to stick the FP4 Plus...

No, nothing to do with nostalgia. You assume people who use Leicas necessarily use b&w film. There was a 1970's b&w Leica aesthetic that was undoubtedly popular, and still is, but this is something else. The point of the new camera, assuming that the image quality is decent, is something that many people have been dreaming about for a long time - a digital rangefinder with decent quality. Colour or, if you prefer, b&w - whatever.

There are many advantages to a rangefinder over an SLR for particular kinds of photography, mainly street photography and discreet photojournalism. These advantages are exactly the same now as they were pre-digital. Photographers have had to struggle with bulky SLR's and noisy mirrors, or stay with film. Now there is another option - a digital tool made for the job. At least, that's the theory. Let's wait for the reviews.

Sadly I don't have a spare 5000 at the mo, but when I do it'll be high on my wish-list.

Plus some of the lens costs are not bad for the quality level, so the body does cost a lot, but as krakman states there are some cases where the rangefinder has a few advantages.
