    Well, as you know, it's never about the camera but the photographer. Having said that, the guy with a Leica and some nice Leica glass will always take better pictures simply because he's much more likely to have his camera with him when something good happens. 4x5 chromes...yeah, I bet plenty of great, fleeting moments are caught on those. Sorry, I couldn't resist

    Aaaah, but those impromptu portraits of the local glaciers just can't be beat. .

    In all honesty, i'm just happy to see someone putting money into a classic brand that's so historically rooted in film photography. All the more so in the backdrop of the death throes of Kodak as we know it.

    Hopefully my doom and gloom attitude is completely wrong, and Leica stays elite and continues to make superior equipment.[/QUOTE]. .


    I also hope Leica does not divert from its philosophy of superior quality. Sadly, in a world of short term thinking and "instant everything", the appreciation of true quality is likely to rest with a knowledgeble minority.

    Proverb worth repeating in the circumstances: "The feeling of bitterness over a poor quality product, remains long after the sweetness of a bargain price has been forgotten."
