Re: Not just K.R. you can also add Phil Askew to the same list of Leica's fan club
In reply to Absolutic, Oct 12, 2009

To compare the rants of KR to Phil is ludicrous.

One week KR will go on a rampage saying that the camera does not matter in the least. (like he did a few weeks ago raving about the cell phone images he saw). Not long before that, he said that buying the most expensive camera is stupid (like he did about the D3X, where he tried to start a boycott). Then KR buys into the most expensive system of cameras around, Leica bragging about how it makes his images better and is the best there is. He works in circles like that, you know. Phil is more of a straight line kind of guy. He will tell you that the M9 is a really great fun camera, but not try to cinvince you that it is all you ever need, while saying everything else is not worthy.

I am not a KR fan and I really tired of oversaturated photos of his kids. But he is not the only one who went Leica-nuts lately. Phil Askew, the dpreview boss, seems to be going the same way. He wrote that it has been all that he has been using lately. Read his preview of M9. Just an observation
