Ted Grant said in a Photographer's Forum interview:

"...When I got my first Leica M4, I felt a psychological change come over me. I identified with Cartier-Bresson and Eisenstaedt. They used a Leica, therefore so would I. I know that the brand of camera means nothing. But it raised my own expectations, and my photographs got better."

Kind of a side-track, I know, but it's interesting, how these things work.
