    A majority of the pictures I've seen taken with a Leica lenses are not all
    that sharp. They may have good contrast,but you can have both in a 100mm
    Minolta AF or a 50mm Cannon for half the price.

    Just having any particular lens (or camera) is not a guarantee of great
    images. There is also technique to be considered, especially since most 35 mm
    photos are captured hand held. It should also be apparent that there are some
    quite nice lenses made by other companies.

    Almost anyone looking at random photos would be lucky to guess what equipment
    was used in the photos. In fact, without knowing the photographer, or what
    gear was used, it would be tough to tell much of anything. The gear does not
    make the image compelling, but the person behind that gear, and the decision
    of when and where to capture an image, can make an image compelling.

    There is much more to photography than the gear. It can either help you, or
    make realizing your vision difficult. You don't need eyes to see, you need

    Troll alert!

    One look at the poster's handle and return email address should have
    been enough to give that away, yet people still attempt to provide
    serious replies to a not very serious question.

    Pity no-one found the upgrade that told them to look at the troll's
    handle and return email addy before replying ...
