I disagree, If you read this list you can read much bandwith that Leica is
over priced, under technologized and generally owned by doctors, attorneys
and white gloved collectors. It is a company that should have folded in the
past but continues to produce product whose quality is declining and though
just released a camera that updates its 1950's designed flag-ship product
many call for still more improvements.  All this tells me they have a damned
good marketing and advertising program.:>)

Happy snaps,
