    The NYT needs a proofreader. "rangefinder" has not been two words for a very, very long time.

    But I think this thread already exists:

    I am glad I don't know him:

    “If celebrities are going to be seen with a camera, for better or for worse, Leica does lend a certain cachet,” said Michael Holve, a professional photographer on Long Island who runs a Leica enthusiasts’ blog called La Vida Leica! “It seems a Canon or Nikon is somehow bourgeois, or even pedestrian, by comparison.”

    Heh.

    That first photo (of an X100) isn't too sharp either.

    This probably what HB needs to sell their "Lunar". Rent a celebrity.

    Since this is in the Leica forum, for a moment, I read your post too quickly and thought you typed "This is what HCB needs"....not "This is what HB needs"...LOL . I doubt HCB was thinking along the lines of the new Lunar....but one never knows
