Leica are to cameras as Bugatti are to cars. They are, for the most part, made for and owned by wealthy people as collector's items, an investment, fashion statement or to actually use because money is no object.

How many pros use a Leica as their tool of the trade? How many enthusiasts will shell out £15K - £20K for a body and two lenses? There are some, of course, but not many.

Leica cater for a very select market but that market will always be there so long as wealthy people exist and the German manufacturer can maintain its reputation.
