I think they meant 35 lux v's 35 summarit and 50 lux v's 50 summarit. At least these focal lengths are somewhat reasonable.
If they were referring to the 21 & 24 lux's, then I'd expect demand to be strong since it's so new and many will want to upgrade.

Do you really think photos will be 20something pounds better ?
I understand pros to use it but , for a hobby , its only logical when you have 20something poket money , no ?, not my case
I would like one , yes of course .
Some people do have 20 something pocket money and if Leica has done their marketing research correctly they know that a certain number of those people can't wait to give it to Leica!!!
yes , I'm sure all that money is out there waiting to go for an S , but I think lost will go to people that simply want the best and can pay it with no problems (i'm always talking of non pros) I bet there are quite a big lot of M with lovely lenses in the box . That have been left because some PS lovely little camera does its job , And I understand it , you have the money , you ask what's the best , you buy it and then you realize it something not so easy to do and you keep it . You get your 100megapixell camera you bought last time , not long ago , and put it in your pocket because it small and does great shots.
I would say , all of us in forums ... are a very little part of camera buyers .
People that aren't crazy like us , buy the camera to take their photos . and the easier de best . the smaller the best , and now days its difficult to find a camera that wont satisfy normal people , not us crazy people that look at the pixels before we look at the shot ( just a way of talking )
I quite agree with both your posts.
If their target quantities for the first year are in the 1,000 or so . . I think there might actually be enough collectors worldwide to fulfill that quantity.
There are plenty of people who can simply go and spend that kind of money on a car / camera / boat whatever, and compared to smart cars and boats it's pretty small change - and they're much more likely to buy an S2 kit than a Hassleblad or Phase outfit.
Unfortunately I'm not one of those people
Hell, I can't even afford a Noctilux . . or a 24 'lux
Just this guy you know
