I love the people that tout the "Leica" look. Subject matter, maybe, but telling me that one negative looks more like it was shot with Leica glass than Nikon or CZ is hogwash. Use whatever you like that helps you get the pictures you want. If you want to spend $4000 on a set up to shoot only black and white, be my guest. I understand the desire for the "best", but sometimes it is a little too much to buy into the mystique.
