!!!! Is this your own personal view?

dpr is free by the way!

I am assuming Toccata's line was a bit tongue-in-cheek.

And with paying he did not refer to DPR membership, but to "membership" of the Leica-using elite...

The simple truth is that what Nicholas said is partly true:  there are indeed many Leica-users who have evolved towards Leica through a long line of experience with other cameras, and in Leica they finally find a way of expressing that fits them best.

But the opposite is also true: there are also Leica-users who buy Leica because of the snob factor (I've read recently that it is currently a fad amongst rich models, actors and singers to hang a Leica around your neck like you would wear a necklace or jewel).  And they could benefit from interaction with passionate photographers using other brands, because they could, if they would, learn a few things about art and composition.
