It canít just be the brand? Has Panasonic German supervision in making the new comparable bodies or itís just a compatible ecosystem that Leica affecionados with their rangefinder focusing heritage can give their hearts to in the 2020s and beyond?

I would say that their proprietary lens technology would play a huge role. However Leica has had to reinvent itself in order to survive. It would appear that they are evolving into a design center for products under their specs but manufactured elsewhere.
