Default Leica V-Lux 3 clone FZ150!

I do not want any open flame, but I want to argue with you!

Why is the Leica brand has produced a clone of the Panasonic FZ150 certainly at a price much higher (about twice) ?

I kinda opened up the debate a few days ago here... though no-one took the bait..lol...
The badge and strap look nice.... and maybe it comes with a case...?
I do believe it comes with a branded photo editor also... though only available as a download after registration...!!
A BARGAIN...

Oops... no- no case... though you can buy one for an extra 130 or so....

The fact that the sale is expected by January 2012, at a price so high, for a machine identical (other than perhaps in the firmware and software bundled) I really looks like a very questionable business transaction.
But we can be pleased that a mark as Leica, announces the release of his exceptional new model for next year, and we already use now with Panasonic!
