I agree with you 100% Rick. I have been a Leica user for a long time but a Nikon user longer. I never gave the weight of the systems a second thought. To me it was picture quality. I went through phases where I mostly used my Leica's and other times I mostly used my Nikon's. I loved my first Leica digital camera, the M8, but it exposed problems with the rangefinder system and focus shift problems with the very fast f1.0 and f1.4 lenses. When I got my Nikon D3X I stopped using my Leica's. Even with Leica's best lenses the photos from the D3X were just better. The D800 is just another step upward.
