There certainly are a large number of well-known photographers that rely on Leica cameras.  But like so often in life, there are a large number of unknown heroes that use Leica equipment very much to their advantage also.

My article about the Leica Digilux 2 (Leica's First Mirrorless Camera) from April 12 created a lot more interest than I expected.  After all, it is a relatively old camera that does not measure up to what Leica has to offer now.

Yet the camera is capable to produce high quality photographs, even by today’s standards.  As I explained, it was my first digital Leica.  It has done a great job for me.  I still like to use it, even though I have long since graduated to a Leica M240 with a large compliment of lenses.

Rather than sitting on a shelf, I turned the Digilux 2 over to my wife Monika Kopeć.  She has a degree in Art History from the University of Minnesota and she also graduated from the School of Communication Arts in Minneapolis. Combined with what I consider excellent photographic skills, she has produced some very good photographs with that camera.  Even though the the Digilux 2 is her main camera, she has produced some excellent work with other cameras (medium format and large format) as well.

Rather than trying to put her work with the Digilux 2 into words, it is obviously much better to show a selection of her work done with that camera.  As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
