    Not made in Germany than no way.

    Have to agree with Guy. The good version would come from Germany.

    The Red Dof is on the Rear end....if you will.....

    In the unlikely event that a Leica fanboy (or gal) ever happen across this forum, he or she would be insulted by this sacrilege. But that's not likely to happen: we're all very serious artists here.

    This must be for the prospective X1 rated owners. Personally, I'm holding out for the R-series rated model, which of course would be available in either anthracite gray or black (with the red dot, I hope).

    Yeah, yeah I know...the R series is dead, I won't hold my breath.

    I'm sort of appalled by this! In this era of political correctness and setting a proper example, is this teaching our kids to practice "safe photography"?? At the very least, this product should come with a screen protector

    I think it is overexposure. The highlights look like they are blown.

    Hah, so typical for Leica community to emphasize manual exposure even in this modern day and age.
