I never realised Leica used to be that much of a luxury camera company. I thought it was pretty much the standard for working photojournalists back in the day.

Leicas were expensive then, same as now. Many professionals used Canon copies of Leica models. That was Canon's bread and butter for many years in the late 40's and into the 50's.

I have a 1951 Canon iv-f, and it's a beautiful piece of hardware.
