When I was a darkroom printer and before I was a Leica owner, I consistently
saw differences in negative quality from the professionals at KameraBIld -
fine photographers all. My research proved that the negatives with that
wonderful "sparkle" all came from Leicas. There was a definite difference.
Within a couple of months, I had my own Leica.

P.S. let's critique ideas or photos, B.D., not the fine members on this

Sorry to hurt your feelings, Mark - When I was shooting film, I did
so with a combination of Leica glass and Nikon glass - I have used
both on and off for more than 40 years. And, no, I don't think you'd
be able to tell the difference between my Leica images and my Nikon
images - I know that I can't, with the exception of those shot with
the Leica 21 ASPH for the M and those shot with wide Nikons, which do
not begin to measure up.

And, btw, I don't claim to be master printer, so I don't know what my
saying that the black and white prints produced by an HP printer
compare to custom RC prints has to do with a discussion of the work
of Sabastio Salgado; I'd step in front of an oncoming bus before I'd
deign to compare my prints, or any of my photography, to Salgados. ;-)
