So who said we don't use our cameras?  In my particular case I
have over a hundred images online at to back this up.
I use my Ms every week, both for fun stuff (the candids) and
also for pay-the-bills 360-degree VRs.

It is just that, as I noted earlier, compared to North America
Leicas elsewhere are relatively expensive.  Those of us who
aren't dumb or Trust Fund Babies have to take a little care to
protect our substantial investments.

(Yawn...) This is so obvious - why the foot-stamping?

If Leicas cost the same as hardware store hammers, then
this analogy would make perfect sense.
