It is strange to me that we're having a discussion critical of brand
loyalty and selecting items based on brand on a list dedicated
entirely to one brand of camera! I'd wager that the majority of us
have certainly bought bodies or lenses based on little more than the
name Olympus on the label. Given that there is a consensus that Leica
is a high quality camera, why would we criticize someone who simply
opted for a different brand than we did?
