Re: Leica isn't so special

Film cameras, okay - there are enough 35mm film cameras along with lenses out there. But show me ONE single other, full-frame rangefinder.

There are lots of reasons to buy a Leica. As mentioned in the article, yes - some people do just buy one to put on the shelf.

Others, like myself - that actually shoot with their Leica gear... Might just say it IS special for the reasons listed in the article. To each their own; there is no right or wrong.

Excuses excuses. If you want to use the superb lenses you have to pay up. Fortunately there are lot of people with disposable income who don't care about the prices. Heck my wife has handbags almost as expensive. No no it is a luxury item also. I know quite few who bought Leicas without ever using it. Same as Rolex.
