Agreed. But how do we measure or compare suffering? All suffering is
bad and that gives respect to the victims, yes? Whose pain is worse? Ask the
victims.

All these comments prove at least one thing; the power of a photograph to
influence, inform, inspire us. For that we can all be grateful, yes? We can
all do our photographs as witnesses to our lives, yes? Todays snapshot is
tomorrows history lesson!

Try looking at WERNER BISCHOF's World War 2 photos. They look like they were
shot yesterday. Timely and timeless at the same time. Sad. He lost his life in a
auto accident while in PERU. Sad.

By the way, war journalists volunteer for that job....they could be doing weddings instead. That takes courage. The service of all the draftees was
courageous too, they had no choice. They could have been doing something
better with their lives, but again they had no choice.

All wars are bad, but we need journalists to document them for future generations. Without a record of history, we're more likely to repeat our mistakes.
Artists just react to the society around them. Without wars, they would obviously
choose other subjects, yes? I like Werner Bischoff's photos of germany after
WW2.

In reply to:

SirAntonio: Dear wingers!
The claim "Leica has announced a more affordable rangefinder" was written by the dpreview editor, not Leica (try and find that claim in the press release)
but that's beside the point, the point is that it is indeed about $1,500 cheaper than the other camera they announced today, so it is indeed more affordable than that.
You all seem to be mistaking the "more affordable" with "I can afford it"

Leica has always made any photographers work better. Leica has always been expensive. Leica has always been the benchmark. Leica was probably the first professional 35mm camera of choice. Leica is good, yes?
