Hi Don & Doug,

In my case it was my mother-in-law that first showed me the kind of results 
Leica glass in the right hands could produce. Years later when looking for a 
35mm SLR camera system to purchase I looked at Nikon, Canon, Olympus and 

Leica won hands down. Since then I have also picked up Leica M and LTM 
rangefinders and Leica V35 enlargers in the darkroom. At present, I use 
rangefinders with glass of 90mm and wider and Leica R for anything longer 
than 90mm.
