  1. I think Leica deserves a lot of credit to pay renewed attention to the purpose of using cameras in the first place, to take pictures. For too many years Photokina was too much of an equipment only show. It is also interesting to see that many other equipment manufacturers have followed suit this year with photography exhibitions of their own. But Leica is hands down the leader in this field.
