Leica glass certainly does endure.

Moreover, the systems endure.
LTM lenses play well on M2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 / 8.2
The Visoflex, focus mounts and bellows, all endure and play well with  

The SL glass plays well with R3 through 8/9/DMR.

If we're celebrating 100 years of Leica
I have a hard time imagining
why we would not focus on Leica systems.

Yes. It's also wonderful
that all sorts of folks made adapters
to mate Leica glass to other systems;
as those of us who've done this have testified;
the other systems provide a different look
than the sensors chosen by Leica.

If we're celebrating Leica
why would we not wish to
demonstrate what Leica
has provided and achieved.

my 2 cents

Fond regards,
