Subject: Odp: [Leica] I WANT to make my own choices...

I always explain my non photographers friends that one of the reasons that I
use leica M (sooo... obsolete) is that it is the only camera that doesn't
need a flash. I hate the pictures taken with N**** F5 and fill in flash e.g.
the cool girl with the sunset in background, shining (girl) like a star.
