Jeez Chuckie, you just explained, in 50 words or less, your IQ and every
other detail of yourself.

The good folks are still here. Ted being at the very TOP of the list.

It does require some level of intelligence to operate a Leica. They are
meant to be used by people who actually understand the craft of photography.

And it is really great that companies like Nikon make completely automatic
cameras, for folks who cannot think past their single digit IQ. They saw a
market and filled it. So now you can have a camera too.
