Leica has alway's been mirrorless. I did not care for your opinions and I want you to come to understand this. You sound like a spoiled child, just how old are you anyway? I'd guess around 22yrs old.

If you actually had a Leica, which (BTW I do have 2 Leica's) then maybe your eyes would open up and see why people like them just the way they are.

One thing is clear to me you are uninformed. Leica is at first and foremost a lens manufacturing company. The original Leitz factory was founded around 1888 in Wetzlar Germany and they were among the world leaders in microscope manufacturing. The Leica cameras are made as an instrument to mount these lenses.

Leica photographers like to keep things simple and these M camera are just what they want. They use their own knowledge to get the images not computerized tools. Did you know that it was a Leica employee that invented 35mm cameras and it was Leica that invented Auto Focus? Leica deemed that the people who used their cameras had no need for AF and hence they sold it to Minalta, who in turn came out with the worlds first AF cameras using the Leica technology.
Leiuca does not need "pupies" like you. In fact you do not deserve a Leica.

A 256K LCD screen is working just fine on my Olympus E-P1 so I do not agree with you or DPR on that one.

Well said.

One must know how is to use a Leica and why some like it.

Then one can have an well formed opinion to comment.
