Subject: [Leica] LEICA M7, why the people like it so much?

Hola from Barcelona,

I ask me why you..., the people loves so much the M7, of course is an
attractive camera, but I can relate my experience. I've started with Leica
with the R system, I don't remember to have never used the automatic system
as my usual system, the only feature I've used very frequently was the
memorization of the exposure. When I've used the R automatic system the bad
pictures over the good ones were never more than the bad ones I've take with
the M, in manual system.

When I've decided use only the M system was because I can fully control my
decisions, I don't know if the viewfinder of the M7 displays Shutter Speeds,
but such things only disturb and distract my attention, the pure M system,
for me, is not this, for these reasons the M7 is not an attractive camera
for me, it is not a true Leica M.

Well this is what a think....

Greetings from Barcelona
