After my initial shock of incredulity wore off, I realized that it made perfect sense from a marketing standpoint. Leica can offer a cheaper version of their camera(s) and sell more lenses without cheapening their own brand. That would make sense if the Zenit were significantly less expensive. However, after I saw the MSRP of the Zenith, I'm back to incredulity.
