Leica strive to make cameras as unobtrusive as possible.

Principally manual, very few on-body controls, simplistic and compact appearance.

All to enable the photographer to capture an image with as low profile as possible.

The best sensor? sharpest lenses? Leica do their best without compromising the guiding principal to enable the photographer to do his job whilst not getting in the way with the technicalities of capture.

Leica photographers understand this. It might not be the best gear, but it's the best for the job of capturing the scene without impacting the scene.

If you're still at the pixel-peeper/kit compare stage, you really don't get it.

Go take photographs.
