    New M mount CCD Rangefinder...not from Leica?

    Peter is also a rabid "CCD is the only good way" acolyte...

    It's good to have a hobby.

    Sounds nice. I believe there was a company called Konost working on a CMOS M mount rangefinder.

    Not too many CCD sensors out there with > 24 MP. There's this one: http://www.onsemi.com/PowerSolutions...o?id=KAI-29050

    Before going with large sensor CMOS, Sony made a 36mp CCD sensor. This is nearly over 10 years ago.

    Mechanical range finders do not need electronic live view (or video for that matter) and hence CCD is just perfect.
