    We "talked" about a Digital Leica M3, and it could be done. But- used prices of the M8 are at the $1500 mark, the M9- below $3500.

    I saw the conversion, it is a real masterpiece. I had a mechanical engineer working for me that had a CNC and solid printer. I never caved into temptation to sideline him to camera parts. But it crossed my mind...

    I agree with Brian that the cost (labor and material) will make such conversions expensive, when alternatives are available.
