Agree 200/2.8 Leica has a high price. However they have positioned the price between a regular 200mm/f2.8 ($1000) and a 300mm/f2.8 ($3000 - $8000) using the lower end of prime prices on BH Photo.
WISH they had PDAF. I’m waiting to see CAFTr test results with Pana 100-400mm to determine interest.
Yes, I do not want to look through that EVF as it may hypnotize me to buy, without confirming necessary performance criteria first.

Still no phase-detect, but a f2.8 lens will definitely help in AF-speed though.
I'm sure the 200/2.8 Leica will be a very sharp lens, but it's overpriced, here is another lighter 200/2.8 (APS-C) at a third of the price.
Or why hot a Nikon 300/4 PF as comparison it's 450mm f5.6 eqv. on a D7500.
Would be very
interesting to see a comparison between these systems and the picture quality in real life.
Maybe it's something I don't get here...
