Well, pretty is definitely in the eye of the beholder.....it's definitely shiny. I think the Leicas with viewfinder are infinitely better-looking (maybe handsome instead of pretty?)But you have to admit the T is sure a pretty camera
Here's one for $1800+
Leica 018-181 T 16 MP Compact System Camera with 3.7-Inch LCD Silver | eBay
It is not only that, it is simplified manual controls in a small package. Back in the day every cam was manual aka simplified....aperture, focus and shutter speed. That plus the rangefinder is what appeals to me with Leica.In short, I think Leica offers two strengths with it's brand......legendary lenses and the only camera-maker that still offers a TRUE rangefinder focusing mechanism. The lenses can be used with any manufacturers body (with varying degrees of success and/or hassle). But TO ME, a Leica body (no matter how attractive or from whatever rare Earth element it may be milled from) is of no interest without a rangefinder focusing system.
