Re: Surface Design : MS Listens and Learns ?
I think the Leica camera demonstrates that point. Leica doesn't use anything close to the best sensor technology, and you can produce better images with far cheaper systems, especially among the ASP-C style cameras such as the one in the article. Even their full frame cameras, which are masterworks of mechanical precision, aren't the most functional, per se, and if they offer any image advantages (which would come mostly from the lens), they're very small. Nevertheless, Leica's fixed-lens crop camera costs more than most other companies' prosumer full frame models, and Leica's full frame models cost more than a used car.
