recently since I opened a google+ account I have had 2 or 3 occasions where people have been quite abrasive and/or insensitive with comments on some of my shots, and it seems to stem from the fact that I own a leica .
" Owning a leica wont make you a better photographer"
" Oh a Leica, when is your first gallery opening?"
I concur with the first statement , but my reply was
" Will owning a Leica make me a WORSE Photographer?"
cue tumbleweeds and crickets chirping from the lame-o
I just wanted to see if anyone else has encountered this, I put it down to envy to be honest, because one of the commenters owns about 20 cameras and I bet if he added up the cost he could buy a M9 with a 50 lux.
Like I said, I just wanted to get this off my chest as I was a little disappointed more than anything else as one of the people was someone whose shots and photos I actually liked, oh well
