A Leica M9 Rangefinder. I have an old Leica (film) Rangefinder...'52 11f.

IMO a Leica Rangefinder is the best built camera one can buy. Yes I've used one.

The HD460 is a DSLR (just a medium format one) so it's out...

I'd go for an Alpa SWC with a Phase One IQ180 digital back... :p

+1 to that, or Hasselblad SWC (not sure if you can use digital back on it, but film is also great). :)

Why? Is the red dot really worth $400 over the cost of the Panasonic ZS10?

I don't actually have any interest in a P&S so I don't have all the models memorized. If someone said go get the best one possible, the Leica is the one I would pick. That video they shot with it is pretty amazing for a point and shoot.

Well I've got a Bessa R3A, an E-P2, and a recently acquired R-D1 so it all depends on what I want to do I guess.

You are missing the point. Leica does not make P&S cameras. Leica puts their logo on come of Panasonic's P&S cameras and charges 3 times as much for the honor. The Leica Lux30 you linked to is the exact same camera as the Panasonic ZS10, but the Leica runs $750 while the Panny is only $220.

Don't know...but back in 2004 I bought a Panasonic with a 'Leica' lens. I was full of expectations....I was disappointed. Compared to my 'old Leica Rangefinder with it's even older Leitz Elmar lens...picture quality comparos between the two are strictly no contest. The nod goes to my Leica and it's Elmar lens.

Of course they are no contest. Would anybody expect a digital P&S, especially a digital P&S from 2004, to be able to stand up to one of the best 35mm cameras ever made?

And back to the discussion at hand, would you expect that same Panasonic P&S to magically perform better just because the name plate was switched to one that says Leica?

That is an easy one, today it would have to be the Canon S100.
