Hey guys ... Leica is NOT a large international corporation. They
have a widespread international reputation ... trademark, but they're just
a little fish in the pond. I suppose they would fit in the SME (Small and
Medium Sized Enterprises) box. Cut them some slack. Not even the big boys
(Nikon) are doing well. But Nikon doesn't have the loyal customer base
that Leica has.

So, if you can run a greasy-joint in Austin or a picture bureau ... you
can run Leica :)

They're just trying to get by. Who isn't?
