Okay, time to piss everyone off - again. ;-)

But what a crock of etc. the above comment is. Clients don't know your
Leica from a Holga, a Nikon D1, or a Pentax Spotmatic. What they like
are the images your equipment captures. If they like that "Leica touch,"
what they like is the fact that you are most at ease using the Ms, "see"
better with them, and therefore get better photos when you use them.
They're tools, GdDamnit! They're great tools, but they're tools.

As as to Leica's being the "quiet cameras," as I believe Bill R. quoted
a bride telling him. Yes, during the ceremony they are indeed "the quiet
cameras," but unless everyone is in a coma before and after the
ceremony, no one notices the "noise" generated by anything other than,
perhaps, a first-generation motorwind on an SLR - say an MD whatever on
a Nikon F F2 or F3....
