I read this week that the leading 8 mfrs of digital cameras expect to sell
89m cameras during 2007, up 18% on the previous year.

Few digital compacts seem to be engineered to last more than 2-3 years,
Even with recycling that's a lot of landfill.

It's only a matter of time before we see $20 disposable digicams with
built in memory, battery and cheap CMOS sensor. The surviving
photofinishing trade will love them, as they'll be designed as drop-off
and get back prints (chosen at a console) and a DVD.

So I think that's a perfect excuse to buy a Leica M8 and save the planet :)
