Rawmeister: So the human race has come to chit like this now.
I'll pray for all the dumb bastages with more money than brains.
Anyways, Murphy's law states that it's a crime to not part a sucker from his money, so I guess all is in order in the universe.

I do wonder how those folks that run that company in Germany sleep at night though. Surely they don't think they make much of a real contribution to the world - do they?

They sleep as well as any luxury goods or services company, I guess. The people who handmade these amazing products for which others are willing to spend a fortune for. I would feel good. If you think about the watch industry, or jewelry, cars. you can make the case for all of them...

I had the pleasure to meet and talk to a few of the Hermes Artisans who create handbags, scarves, saddles, shirts and watches. It changed my view of Hermes completely. These guys are truly master craftsmen and -women and do an amazing job. These guys are trained for many years and most of them work for Hermes until retirement. Their skills are incredible.

Leica has settled to be the "luxury" camera company. Hence they do everything right in regards to the critical "over-engineering" required to play in the luxury league. They produce amazingly well (hand-)made products for premium prices. This Leica is so much more than just a camera, especially for the people who buy them. Some will use them to show off, some will just use them as intended and some will collect them.

I am currently not able to afford one of these, but I truly appreciate the beauty and work put into these products. There is something very special to it and I guess it will feel very special in your hands...
