I post this weird question because I know a friend, a local pro photographer, who was attacked by a streetperson, high on crystal meth this past summer. My friend was trying to photograph a City sponsored event at a City park, when this bum, high on meth demanded "turf-money", and then violently attacked my friend. (My friend is not exactly the kind of guy who is into fighting, he a sensitive, artsy kind of guy.) He was able to get away from this violent confrontation, and avoid being severely hurt, only because he was able to hit his assailant a few times over the head with his Nikon F4s, stun the assailant, and run to find a cop!!!! The F4s was none the worse for wear after it was used as weapon - in fact, it seems to be working just fine since. My question is this - has anyone had a similar experience using a Leica? I wonder how a Leica with a 50mm Summicron would fare under similar circumstances.
