    Well, not the (tm) version but take a look at this:

    http://www.dpreview.com/news/0306/03062502leicadigitalr9.asp

    From dpreview:

    "Leica has today announced the development of a Digital Module for the Leica
    R8 & R9. This new module has a ten megapixel Kodak sensor and has been
    developed in association with Imacon. The module is made up of two parts, a
    digital back which cliips onto the rear of the camera and a power unit which
    fits on the base. The digital back has a ten megapixel Kodak sensor which
    produces a FOV crop of 1.37x and has a sensitivity of ISO 100 to 800. Image
    formats will include RAW (Imacon 3F), storage by SD card."

    Pop along to dpreview for the full Leica Press Release.

    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.
