	With such a product, at least
	one can hope the "fresh" owners
	eventually will GROW into it...

	At least, the equipment is NOT
	a "limiting factor",
	would you not agree... ?    ;=)

	PS: I have sold a lot of audio
	    and Contemporary furniture.
	    Sometimes, some high end customers
	    would BRAG to people around them
	    how MUCH they paid for this or that,
	    FAR above the amounts they actually had
	    spent: THAT turned me off !

	    "Showing off" with a Leica
	    CAN be so kool...
	    As a sociologist,
	    it AMUSES me !

	    NOT my "style" with anything,
	    but one can hope such fools get BORED with theirs
	    and it somedays will get in the hands
	    of a more creative person,
	    which such "tools" truly deserve.

	    The FACT that a Leica IS a recognizable STATUS SYMBOL
	    says a LOT about the product...
	    it sure is NO negative !
