Re: who uses leica

To the OP:  We are uncertain what level of skill you possess.  Leica is selling mystique for obsolete technology and very few features.  That is called the 'slow, thoughtful' approach to picture-taking because you are stuck with a squinty rangefinder and manual focus and turning that into a virtue. Some folks have talked themselves into believing that the lens quality is better, which to me is questionable.  Even the camera magazines (discreetly) conclude that there are no differences, or come up with results no better than comparable FL DSLR system lenses. in testing Leica optics.   How much is having a status item worth to you?  And, if it's worth a lot, consider ordering up a Leica "a la carte" with chartreuse ostrich skin covering or something like that.
