OK, truce!

Leica was, and remains, among the best built cameras in the business. One cannot get away with denying that fact. That is why premier brands such as Hasselblad went to the moon and why Leica (with with its quiet shutter) went to war zones. That, 250swb, confirms that these cameras are not always SOLELY for snobs as I might have inferred. But, given the amazing prices today, I think that in MOST circumstances they simply are NOT NEEDED for optimal photos. That is all I had intended to Infer and I think that most reading this post will concur. - David Lyga
