    I remember reading somewhere that Henry Ford had to drastically reduce the price of new Model Ts when they became popular due to the large number of secondhand models becoming available.

    Yes, build quality and yadi-yada, I know.....I know.
    I wonder if they will consider it fashion statement to simply print the facts for most of their (post 60s) stuff.. Manufactured in Portugal (in small type) and Assembled in Germany (in big letters).

    Making book here, anyone want in on this action? We are at 5 of 7 pages. Even money on making all 7 pages, 2 to 1 on going a full 15 pages, 8 to 1 on 30 pages of discussion.

    One must put up an a Leica M Camera Body, (M2 or newer). Think of it you could win 8, count them 8 Leica M bodies if it goes 30 pages of discussion. Why we could give the OP-ster a free body so he could afford a lens.

    I really enjoy APUG, very spirited, lots of knoweledge too. So who wants to mail me their M body to get in on this action?

    Now that is a little harsh.

    Ziess rendering and Leitz rendering are somewhat different things. Ziess is punchy.... Leica more suited for a longer tone.

    This is from experience and not conjecture.

    Wow..if I could only get a dollar for every time these discussions come up, I'd be a millionaire. Cameras and lenses are just tools, and the use of these tools is simply a choice one has to make. What's between the ears is what makes a picture. You want a Leica, get a Leica and ignore everyone here. At the end of the day, you are the one who has to live with the choice, and, as long as you understand that it is not what will make you or break you, you are ahead of the game.
