I see we now have lots of Leica special editions appearing. Thats usually the sign Leica are trying to make as much money as possible out of the old platform before releasing the new M.
I am still waiting for the new M to be announced before I decide which M to get, either the new M or the old M at a budget price, likely the updated M type 262. The downside of the M type 262 is no live view and for the odd occasion I use a Leica for intimate boudoir photography, live view has its uses.
To make the budgeting worse I am still looking for a small everyday, autofocus mirrorless solution. I would love a Leica SL but its a little large, so currently Olympus are the top of my list followed by Panasonic, but I an still interested in what the Leica T replacement will be like as a DX crop factor will work better with my existing Leica glass.
