Re: Leica is people, not some imaginary idea

Hi Andrew,

sorry, but I completely disagree.

Leica is still a philosophy, that still lives in Wetzlar, Germany. Leica is still a company of enthusiasts, that live an idea. Just like Zeiss, Schneider Kreuznach, Rodenstock, Linhof, Sinar, Hasselblad. If you don't believe, I would like to meet you at the next photokina for a walk to the leica booth - sorry halls!

BTW: Some brands are more than marketing. As you are from England, I'd like to name these brands in line with Rolls Royce, Aston Martin, Morgan, Dunhill,... Guess what I mean?

Kind Regards from Asel / Edersee, 100 km from Wetzlar
