Several years ago (more than I like to remember), I worked in a camera store. We were the main Leica dealer in town which, of course, meant, we also sold the Leica Binoculars.
One day, a gentleman indicated that he was interested in a pair of binoculars for his 10 year old daughter. Thinking that he probably was thinking of something in a more modest price range, I proceeded to take a medium priced pair of binoculars out of the showcase. He immediately rejected it and said that he wanted to give her a pair of Leica binoculars.
“After all,” he said, “her eyes are the only ones she will ever have.”
