The article brings back memories.
Back in the early 90's I had decided to cover news for a weekly with 
120 TLR and SLR. I remember being elbow to elbow with the AP folks, 
them cursing their digital Flintstone cameras and me cursing reloading 
12 exposure rolls. In the space of 3 years from 95 to 98, everyone was 
shooting digital, myself including.
At the beginning of the 90's many news shooters would have an M2, M4, 
or an M6 with a 35mm along for the ride. By 96-97, even that practice 
fell by the way side. Now, when a news shooter shows up at an event 
with Leicas, it's when they're not on the clock, and are pursuing a 
personal project that never sees the light of day.
