What is it about a Leica . . .

. . . No other camera can cause the photographer to expect so much.

No other camera can create such a high expectation amongst others of the photographer and his work.

No other camera can create so many ‘old boy networks’.

No other camera can create such a clearly defined line between `Us and Them`.

No other camera can be the cause of such hate fueled jealousy by those who do not or simply can not own one.

No other camera has accumulated so many famous photographers and images, and as a result, be the sole cause of all the above.

The question that will really bake your noodle is, are these qualities good or bad ?
