Is it worth it....
This weekend i found myself on my first of what is probably many trips to new york city, and i found using my main camera, a Fuji gsw690II, and it seemed to be somewhat hindering. Its big, heavy and clunky and f5.6 is pretty slow, dont get me wrong , the print quality from the 6x9 negs is awesome, but i went to B&H and held a leica M4-p and now i really want one, it seems like all the things i dont like about the fuji, the leica does really well, i.e. small, interchangeable lenses, fast glass, larger rf patch.... So i guess what im asking would be, in every leica owners opinion, is it worth it, i would mostly likely have to part with the fuji in order to fund the purchase, and getting a lens as wide as the fuji's would take some serious cash, did anyone else find themselves in a situation where they gave up another camera to own a leica, if so were you happy with the switch? Does loading it, just take time to get used to or is it always a pain? i guess all im trying to ask is, is it worth it to own a leica?
