Rumors cliam that a CMOS based MM is imminent. I do not see myself overextending myself to get an unit, again (granted I am not a typical current Leica user). Even if Leica offers an upgrade path as with the M9 with a free custom engraving thrown in.
(OTOH, if Lou's prediction of a sub $3000/used MM comes through, I will get a back up.)
Is there any interest at all? I have a feeling that the earlier wait for 6 months after getting on the list fiasco will not happen this time around.
