I gave up second guessing Wetzlar's motives and plans years ago...

I agree that the next iteration needs a 50-70 MP sensor..

I find the S increase interesting. Several things have popped up recently while randomly cruising the web: 1) Leica Miami does not have a single new S in stock, 2) Lloyd Chambers (whom I do not follow) has stated "...the S system (now defunct)".

Make of these what you will but something seems to be afoot. I sincerely hope Leica does not abandon the S concept.

Leica Store Miami does have the S007 in stock now together with 15 of the 16 (CS and non-CS) lenses.  I don't believe you can deduce anything from that.

Heard from my dealer in Oslo today that they had 2 orders for S007, waiting for Leica to deliver. So, demand still higher than supply, it seems.

One dealer told me he ordered 6 of them in advance of the price increase. We only know dealer to dealer; I'd be reluctant to generalize about overall supply or demand.

Maybe those who love the experience of a great optical viewfinder and don't need 100s of megapixels?

for my part, my interest will only peak when Leica drop their price to be about the same price of the X1D... like what they did with the S006 at one time around the time of the S007 early sales... But then again, the lens is still very very expensive...
