I'm not a professional guitar player, but my guitar is a tool,
not just a toy. I'm not a professional writer, but my pen is
a tool, not a toy.

I don't understand the photo world's bizarre obsession with
whether one makes money from one's equipment or not.
Why should anyone care?

If one wants to use a Leica, do so. Otherwise, just don't.
Who really cares? Lots of other fine "tools" out there to
choose from.
