---- no particular "fan-boy" meant is involved in this picture --- .... only a fun interpretation about the competition between these two great brands ...
BTW....competition is a good thing !!

Another example of your great imagination and your superb sens of humour! And, another outstanding night shot and excellent conversion to B/W!

You are such an interesting photographer, my friend!...

Warm Regards,

As a Nikon (D700) and Fuji (X Pro 1) user who lurks on the Leica forum, may I say how refreshing it is to read/view posts about photography and not about what a lot of gear heads do or do not like. Wonderful photo to start this thread. If only the Fuji fan boys as you say were as passionate about the image as you Leica-ites.

I come here often to admire your work. Keep it up. In the meantime I will kick myself for knowing that the money I have spent the past few years would have bought me a M9 and a couple of lenses. And all I shoot now is my X Pro 1 and a couple of lenses.

Fantastic capture Gianluca...But you boys are definitely looking for trouble!! Hope "he" (she?) finds it as funny as I did!

It is people like you who inspire me to just shoot photos, whenever, with whatever.
Maybe next time after school, behind the bike racks?

Best regards,
Mark

Dear Mr Gianlucas we will help and bring some big boys from the gym to help out buddy boy. We'll show them big IQ boys that we have the muscle!! Zoran said he's up for it and because you are on his side you can call him Zed to.

PS where is our ambush happening and should we be careful of their kung foo and sharpened chopped sticks?
PPS Cool picture did your flash not go off though.

Super shot and caption Gianluca.
I've got a Fuji, but only a little one (X10) so can I be on your side?

All the best

Excellent shot Gianluca! great light and composition and wonderful humour. Do you accept help from 'light' Leica users, the panasonic guys? If we join do we get Leicas as our weapons

all the best

The Fuji gang will not show up, too busy trying to focus in pitch dark with their cameras...

Nice shot as usual.

X1 or M8 ?

Hi Gianluca,

Very clever ideas you have for interpreting your subjects within photographies

Should he not be standing on the other side of the road for blocking the Fuji guys? I mean in Italy you drive on the right hand side, no? :)))

Cheers,

Tibor
