Another reason is that I can carry two bodies with four lenses and 20+ rolls of film and other stuff in one small shoulder bag. As I get old, older and older still, I'm paying for those many years of daily carrying a big bag of motorized Nikons. My neck, back and left shoulder hurt. They hurt less when I carry less.
The Leica is giving me pride in my pictures again. I'm back to doing my own B&W after 25 years. The camera forces me to take the time to evaluate the light and pay more attention to composition. Even though I have 4 Nikon film and 2 digital bodies and more lenses I'll admit to plus my Hassey stuff, I've only used my Leica in the last month. I'm enjoying it immensely.
