It kinda grew on me...

The system uses a sort of "chassis" that has the screen and the controls and the battery/memory card compartment, and then has interchangeable modules that slide in and out. I'd originally had my interest piqued by a piece at Leicaphilia, where it was pointed out that with the module installed that accepts M-mount Leica lenses, this thing was a sort of modern day Minolta/Leica CL.

In the process of trying to track down one of the (now years discontinued) bodies and a Leica-mount sensor module, I wound up with two bodies and not only the M-mount module but one with a small sensor and a superzoom lens that could take over from where my dear departed Nikon P7000 left off.

In the picture are two chassis units and, from left to right, four lens/sensor modules.
  1. A module with an APS-C sensor and a 24-85mm f/3.5-5.5 zoom

  2. The Leica M-mount module, which has a 12MP APS-C sensor and is here wearing a 40mm f/1.4 Voigtlander Nokton

  3. The superzoom 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 module with a 1/2.3" 10MP CMOS sensor

  4. A 24-72mm f/2.5-4.4 zoom lens on a 1/1.7" 10MP CCD sensor
