    If that costs less than $20,000 I'll be surprised!

    from the article:
    "The planned non-binding price recommendation for the LEICA DIGITAL-MODULE-R
    in Germany is to 4,500 Euro."

    At today's prices that's around AUD$7,700. Still, it's a while off yet but
    if they ask >AU$20K I think there will be a lot more suprised people than if
    it's under $20K.
