This is my first post on this forum, so if I'm doing this wrong I apologize.
I've been a photographer for almost twenty years now, working photographer that is, and I use the M Leica all the time. In fact, I'm using it more today, for all my work, than ever before. I think the industry, at the moment, is being driven by the tech companies, who have the money for advertising, so much of what you hear is solely about the benefits of a digital only workflow. While this new equipment is great for certain things, it is not the best solution for every need, contrary to what you might hear. I've got several different camera systems, I use on a daily/weekly basis, one is digital, the rest are analog. Clients want a photographer they can respect and one that has a point of view. If that point of view happens to be analog, film M, then so be it.
