Subject: [Leica] Professional Use of the M9

Hi Luggers,
As you know I go every year to the Hong Kong Rugby 7's.
When I started going in 1994 there were a few film Leicas in evidence, used 
by some older photographers.
Then both film Leicas and their owners disappeared. This year for the first 
time in a decade or more I saw a couple
of professional photographers shooting with long zooms (of course) but also 
carrying and using M9's
for wide angle shots.

Here's a grab shot of one one of them - taken with the Panasonic GH2.

So, in their usual niche way, Leica is finding some users who are 
professional. Not many but a few.
Just to add to the discussion.
