QWhoZeiss is a long-standing friend of mine.  He is a noted professional
who shoots only Leica and Zeiss glass (well, he does use some
Kilfitt/Zoomar gear, as well, as required) and has done quite well by it.
I spoke with him yesterday but he did not mention his intention to post
his, well, mischevious, note.  His position, though, is that the
photographic worth of a professional must be judged differently than the
work of an amatuer such as myself.

And the thought of professinal photographers judging each others' work is a
bit stimulating!  Imagine the fights -- think of the feeding frenzy as
those who were once close friends tear the skin of the faces of each other
