If I were Leica, I'd design an advertising campaign fashioned along  the 
of Rolex's highly successful ad program  -- running  photos in upscale 
magazines and newspapers of well-known people who wear the  Rolex watch. 
  There are lots of important people who own Leicas and I am sure  Leica 
knows who they are --movie stars, sports figures, business tycoons,  fashion 
figures and so on. 
  All Leica would have to do is ask them and give them a free camera  [plus 
the usual fee.]
  You could show, say, Dolly Parton, [if she owns a Leica] say  something 
like, " Darlin', I ain't much of a photographer but when I want to be  sure 
picture comes out, this is the camera I use.'' --bob  cole
