Re: Leica's color schemes

I think people are referring to the design as a whole. They look more like film or PnS cameras, so people feel that they can relate to the user as just another person on the street rather than some high-brow 'tog creeping up on them and getting in their face with a fancy-pants rig. Most people don't even know what a Leica is, much less what that red dot means. A lot of mirrorless cameras seem to play off that retro motif. Some gear-heads do get a laugh out of it, acting like only hipsters buy into it, but honestly, Canikon DSLRs to me look perpetually stuck in the 90s haha.
