Indeed, who cares what he does and does not buy? I cannot understand why this would matter to anyone.

Do you also get sleepless nights when Ken Rockwell adds or removes articles from his site?

Could not care less what some amateur blogger uses or thinks of equipment.

No, you just like linking to his site. Which is, in the end, a blog.

However, that text is removed now.

Given his lukewarm review the T, then he is definetely not buying a T for himself.

who really cares if he buys one or not?

You should give it a try. Same kinda guy writing about photo stuff and doing "reviews". At least Rockwell's computer doesn't have a broken Caps lock key like Huff's.

Let's hope so; Leica has been the habitat of the rich for too long.

What's wrong with being rich? Rich is a relative term anyway.

I didn't think his review was 'luke' warm, I thought it was very warm.

My T will be here at the end of the month and I am excited to test it with the 23 f/2 as that seems to be the jewel of the two for look most Leica users are searching for.

So, this thread is a typical example of premature conclusions leading to bashing of somebody who gave us all useful information in his own style.

Me neither, but that is hardly breaking news

But I suggest that guys who review scads of cameras and lenses rarely have time to buy or use their own camera kit let alone need to do this.  Why buy and depreciate a T when you can get the next model on loan in a few months time?

Well, he owns and likes an M240 with several Leica lenses.

Rich!!!!

Yes I would say that your jumping to conclusions would mean you do belong in the previously mentioned forums.

If compared to some jobless guy in a ricketty village in the wilds of India, you could say I am rich, maybe very rich. But put beside some people, I am not rich at all, why when the Leica brand is mentioned, does it suddenly come down to money.

This attitude can come from either side of the debate. If one doesn't like leicas, then everyone who owns one is a rich idiot who can't use a real camera. If one criticises a Leica owner who maybe isn't that good a photographer (but thinks they are) then one is immediately jumped upon for being green with envy.

It just seems to go round in a never ending circle.
