What are Leica thinking these days? First they come out with the butt ugly Lenny Kravitz M Monochrom. Then they come out with the even more hideous CL by Jean Pigozzi. I think they are taking design advice from the Trumps.

It's a business concept known as "cash flow." If they sell all 150 units to collectors (as they invariably do), the cash flows.

Perhaps. However, a unit with a decent design would likely sell ten times as many, resulting in an even better cash flow. IMHO, any collector who buys one of these as an investment would do far better in the stock market.

Brent, good to see you here. :)

I completely agree with your comments. This new CL design is absolutely awful! If they asked me, I could came with mush more attractive ideas!.... ;)

But.....

It’s something the engineers agree to, in order to keep the marketing dept. out of more serious design decisions.

That actually makes sense.

Matter of tastes. I don't dislike the Pigozzi personally even if i prefer the regular model. Now limited and special editions are a Leica tradition since the thirties. Nothing new under the sun ;).

If this is the best contribution Leica’s marketing department can come with, then the engineers are right. They should padlock the doors and mine the entrances and exits to the marketing department.
