The Leica Myths and Legends foretold. To praise Leica for the pure quality of thier lenses and build quality is seen as a great sin by many photographers. But, is the Leica glow a reality,and the ability of thier lenses to cast a 3D image seperating individuals other than a compressed image which most other cameras portray. Are they just seen as rich folks toys lost forever among the branded names for the rich and wealthy. Or, is there something else; a choice from the last manufacturer in Europe struggling to survive.
