Dick, that's exactly what researchers are finding. Older people tend to be 
more flexible in many ways. Car brand loyalty is much looser with 50+ than 
18-39. The exact opposite of what marketers are ready and willing to 
accept. Which is why marketing is such a mess in many industries right now. 
They can't get past their prejudices. Sound like a company we all know and 

So, how does that apply to Leica? They need to be a little more open to 
ideas of adapting new technologies, for us old farts. :-)
