at the rangefinderforum is a interesting thread on some factual news regarding leicalink to rangefinder forum
Leica says, they want to sell 10.000 units per year. Even with the prices becoming lower I was pretty sure the whole MFDB market was just 6000 units per year. I don't get their math.
Maybe dfarkas can chime in on this? And while I'm asking, is there a pro service planned, because the aim at the pro with the S2:
"Target group of the S2 are professional photographers (studio, fashion, automobile)"
Thanks in advance
This is a misquote. Stefan Daniel said that Leica estimates the entire MF market to be about 10,000 units per year. They expect to have a double-digit share of this. So, if Leica was able to capture a 10% market share (min double-digit), they'd expect to sell 1,000 units per year, at 20% they'd sell 2,000, etc. These numbers are more where Leica expects to be.
Pro service has been planned from the beginning. We should have details on this before the end of the month, along with system pricing.
