And we might note that the National Geographic photographers who use Leica are a larger proportion by far than in many other photo areas. And they have some of the best photographers on the planet. But be that as it may, they also have lots of photographers that use other systems. But, I go back to the Photo District News Survey. Leica was behind only Nikon and Canon at about 15%. So 15% of the professional photographers out there use Leica amongst other camera systems. And it seems to be growing a bit. I know of several photojournalists at newspapers. One I just learned about is the assistant chief photographer of the Houston Chronicle. Some very nice work, too. - -- Eric Welch St. Joseph, MO http://www.ponyexpress.net/~ewelch Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.
