I've been drooling over this for the past 36 hours since it went public.  Probably the sexiest fixed focal length camera ever!  Cut the price in half and I'm in!  But man, I just bought a 51mp medium format camera as a backup to my other one for less money!

By the way, this has to be the same sensor as what is in the new full frame Panasonic S1R given the identical pixel count and the relationship between Panasonic and Leica.  It is likely the first full frame sensor from Israel's Tower Jazz.

This video on the Q2 resolved my lust for this camera - the corner performance of the lens is not what i would find acceptable in a $5000 fixed lens camera - at least not the test unit used here...
