    The question no one dares to pose

    Erwin Puts's thoughts on the future of Leica.

    "The basic question now is: is it possible to evolve the rangefinder concept into a new concept fitting fro the digital world....."

    Very interesting article....

    "The market wants a Leica to be a Leica: the inheritor of tradition, the subject of lore, and indisputably a mark of status to own."
    Mike Johnston

    He's 100% correct...

    IMO this excerpt sums the problem up precisely: "Still I always return to the M camera and enjoy using it. I am sure many current Leica M users feel the same. But this feeling does not generate a single extra sales. And new markets with additional customers are needed for Leica to survive."

    As much as I hate to admit it, the Leica M has become a "Hermes style" tool...

    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.
