    Ok, so essentially every other decade there is someone who knows how to shoot a Leica haha

    I'm mostly referring to the majority of Leica OWNERS who can't stop talking about MTF charts but couldn't take a good picture to save their life, and you can't dissagree that there are most likely many more owners than there are good photographers who use Leica, some I've seen talk on the forums who actually admitted after years of owning one that they've only shot a roll a year through them, and most were horrible shots.

    This doesn't matter none of it does... Just go shoot!!

    Just put two rolls through my Canon AE-1 that I've had for 20 years, on a first date I had with a lovely girl. Nice waterfalls and some nudes (at her bequest).

    It's been a good day, let's just carry on...

    most people who cook with all clad cookware and wusthof+henkel knives
    they get all the cooking magazines, watch the shows, schmooze with others when the chefs do the book circuit

    are a bunch of wannabe hacks
    they just have their cookware in a rack and look at their knives in the block, but they can't even coarse chop an onion.

    I can coarse chop an onion with my wüsthof knives

    But I'm not a fancy chef for sure...

    I still don't know if you're agreeing with me or just making an abstract comment that has nothing to do with the thread...

    your comment about "most leica shooters can't"
    you know most leica shooters as much as i know allclad+henkel+wusthof users.

    generalizations are usually wrong ...

    Show me more excellent Leica shots and I'll reconsider
    The Leica doesn't actually take the shots. Someone behind it does. Show me excellent shots taken with any camera. They are few and far between.
    Excellent photographers can take excellent photographs with any camera. Those who attribute excellent photos to the camera/lens manufacturer are missing the point....

    So much attention paid to the least important piece of the whole photography puzzle.

    A camera is a tool. Like anybody who likes to do woodworking, painting, cooking, or painting, we like good tools. Why should photography be any different? I love the Leica for its simplicity. It gets out of the way of making pictures and they are well made. I also love my EOS-3 because it helps me focus with my worsening eye sight and saving my ass in spontaneous photography, which I can't do very well with the Leica. But they remain tools. No reason to get worked up about them, as long as they work well for what we do.

    People here seem to like someone they call HCB...
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
