sorry about the mis-communication. I did not mean to give the impression I was being critical of you. You obviously have a passion for the art and craft of photography and choose your equipment based on persuing your vision not on what is the current trend or what others think of you.
And I agree with a previous post about Leicas. I have had the opportunity to use them from time to time and there is nothng quite like what you get with that Zeiss glass.
