A pity the old factory is not still running (even in these bad times) - Leica have reintroduced the M6 film camera and we badly need someone to produce a heritage 35mm rangefinder/lens package which is really affordable. Outside of the politics, Arsenal and KMZ would be possible candidates. Remember - photography transcends politics :)
