fedway: Leica gained a bump in lens sales when Sony introduced the A7 series, and some Fuji owners wanted an economy Leica. Now that Sony, Zeiss and Fuji are filling in the lens lineups of FE and X mounts with excellent lenses, Leica is going to see a dive in sales which will also have repercussions in the second hand market.

If the sensor fails to record that colour and the the rest of the electronic ccircuit is lousy then you just waste your $6000.

On film day everything else being equal the lens reign supreme now with so many variables it is hard to justify the $6000 dollars wide angle lens - sure for some one with money - it is not a problem - no pint put on a $6000 lens on a system that has lousy electronic, sensors and software - that is not to say that Leica cameras are not good - of course their are possibly the best of the best - but at the end of the day the photographer behinds the lens that makes the photos.

MPS Photographic: Using a $5950 Leica 28mm F1.4 lens doesn't automatically make you a great photographer. Using a $135 Nikon 50mm F 1.8D lens doesn't automatically make you a bad photographer.

However, if your attitude is "Only rich a-holes buy Leicas", or "Nikons and Canons etc. are only fit for the common rabble", then that automatically makes you a douche photographer.

Disclosure: That lens costs more than my car, computer and photography gear combined.

It makes you an expensive photographer !

Nothing wrong - they are all over Germany - therefore when someone mentions Made in Germany I immediately relate to the real people who actually does most of the work there. And the fact is German products are something to be coveted speaks volume for the hardworking and diligent of the real working people.

Sorry I retract my comment unreservedly - It was meant to be tongue in cheek - I did not mean to offend anyone.
There are always people with money with their Leica and there are always Nikon and Canon gears to fall back to.

Mr Low Notes: Cool shot!

Thank you - saw this little tree frog in the shoe rack - obviously lost. The Retreat is in the middle of the bush South of Sydney teeming with wild life.

So the Df crowd is not interested in showing off their talent - come on people - that $3000 camera is not for looking.

50 is way to few for this kind of popular images - I could not get into this quick enough - 100 is would have been a reasonable number - but then it is up to you, you call the shot
