Jim,

In this forum photographs are the most important element unlike many of the others where they are secondary to discussions of the latest iteration of particular camera models.

That sums it up.

I don't own a Leica camera, and own only one Leitz lens, but it is worth coming here to see the pictures. The same applies to the Leica forum on Getdpi.

You also have to remember that some people, such as myself, are former Leica owners who consider many of the forum members as friends and so like to stay in touch and what better way than to post a few photographs taken with whatever camera we happen to be shooting with these days, in my case a Ricoh GR.

I suppose it comes down to whether your interest is photography or the cameras that produce the photographs. It is, after all, Digital Photography Review rather than Digital Camera Review and the Leica Forum simply upholds that distinction.

How about "Anyone who owns a book of Cartier-Bresson photographs can post here" ?

your a genius my friend, that's a much better idea than changing the forum name.

best
