I am wondering why MB does not offer front view camera as an option.

I don't have Parktronic in my w209 and I never try it. Isn't cameras better because you can physical see the distance between the cars?

I never had parktronic, but others say the camera is not giving you much on close parking.
I do have camera on the back of my motorhome that gives me so good picture that I can back up to the trailer with 1/4" accuracy, but camera is mounted 10 feet above the ground pointing mostly down. Impossible to do on car.

We think cameras are essential. Of course we sell them… but that aside, our local dealership orders backup cameras from us, that are far better than factory, at a rate of about 10 per week. THey occassionaly order front cameras from us too (it is possible). If you have a good camera with:
.5 Lux for night vision
glass lens (very important as plastic lens gets a haze)
170 degree view (so you can see down the aisle from your parking spot)

they are much better than a simple parktronic ultrasonic sensor
