> >I have yet to meet a professional photographer professionally using > Leica gear in the press activities I attend For what it's worth, I've seen at least three in the past few months. However, a possible explanation is that by the time the photo gets to print, many of the advantages of these nice optics are lost in the quality of the newsprint. The resolution simply isn't that great, and poor registration ends up separating the colors a bit, etc. At least in my local area, most papers work with negatives that have been adjusted for contrast and sharpness via PhotoShop (etc.). In the end, image quality ends up being relatively poor.
