There are plenty of serious photographers and pros on this list, The Leica Users
List, who use their Leicas as their first choice in most photo situations who
don't have to make up any truths about the usability of these, their favorite
photographic tools.
Their pictures speak for themselves. We can see these pictures on their websites
or elsewhere.

There is nothing subtle about the troll we are responding to.
This is The Leica Users List. 
We are not posers we hope.
And I'd think most of us not respond kindly to the ideal of WORKING
PHOTOGRAPHERS POSING with a Leica body on them while using another system to
really do the work.
This is the least subtle low blow I've heard foisted upon us on this list.
There is NO element of truth in it. 
If there were it would be vaguely funny. 
It is not. 

There may be rich Dentist - Stock Broker types who pose with a Leica but have
picture albums all done with point and shoots or mass market AF's even on this

And they will claim to be experts IN ALL THAT A LEICA CAN NOT DO - justifying
their lack of use with it.
