I wonder why, Ko.Fe, I wonder why. I do wonder with my own Leica III what use it got from birth in 1933.
Film amateur with a few rangefinders - Leica III, M2/M3, Werra 3 and Zeiss Super Ikonta 534/16 medium format.

Apart from that have a Rolleiflex 3.5F, the odd Minolta XD7, Hasselblad 500cm, a Topcon Super D and an Intrepid 5x4 large format (not the half of it but I am clearing them out, honest).

I do all my own black and white developing at home.

Actually I saw many Chinese netizen "suggesting" such approach...Will not feel surprised to see a “I take my dear Leica with me to every country we conquer”-ish parody video.

Knowing Leica did their best to help refugees during WW2, I find last few comments showing as little judgement as the aforementioned Brazilian ad agency.

Depends on which 'Leica' Saatchi and Saatchi were referring to. The original Leica in Germany, or the Brazilian Leica subcompany? Leica Australia just posted a video of someone shooting street photographer with the Q2, and it has only appeared on the Australian channel. Seems like the national subcompanies can create their own content and advertising.
