Un, yeah, like they're not senior citizens? :-)

How about The Who? 

"Hope I die before I get old..."

Sorry, but I think some of the most narrow-minded, and obviously least
experienced people (i.e. should listen to the oldesters like Ted - I"M NOT
OLD <G>) are people under 25 or so. They think the whole world should work
like a computer. Instant gratification, no questioning (unless using
Windows of course) and doesn't ask philosophical questions that challenge
the status quo.

I think both sides could learn from the other. But segregating the Leica to
the elderly as the only viable customers is a mistake, and something Leica
is not following, thank goodness.
