"Thorsten - Simply put, thank you!

I'm sure you've had many dozens of emails similar to this one. But I felt that I wanted to write it anyway. Thanks to your website I now understand that you don't buy a Leica, you discover a Leica. Your website led me to discover Leica and I now own an M-9P. But owning a Leica without understanding the philosophy behind its purpose is nothing.

Your website provides the key to the philosophy of enjoying and loving photography with the Leica. You patiently identify what it is that many people sense is missing in their photography, and then point them in the direction of this amazing marvel of form and function.

So thank you again for sharing your passion and helping those who need some gentle reassurance to believe in the red dot and to unclutter their photographic lives and liberate their creativity through simplicity."

"I got myself a Leica M9 about 2 months ago, and like you said it's a camera with just the necessary light controls. I love to shot with it, it's a beautiful experience. I have learned a lot from your site, I guess we we'll keep in touch".
