I think how old we were when starting to use Leica is more significant
than how old we are today.  I seem to recall buying my first Leica at the
age of 20, used of course, but still a very capable camera, a good
replacement for my Argus at that time.  A financial reach at the time, but
well worth it.

Best regards,

Experience is a tough teacher. It gives the test before the lesson.
