I find it interesting how some brands attract hatred and jealously.
Apple are certainly one in the computing field and Leica are such a company in the photography business.
This month Leica posted strong revenue growth, with the Leica M, SL and Q doing extremely well. They managed to grow there market by 6% in a year where the average loss was 10%.
So a company doing well.
The forums were full of hatred, people saying the figures were cooked, that they have never seen a photographer use a Leica or that us Leica’s are all just rich dentists.
Well I helped Leica in there growth this year by purchasing my first new Leica product, the M10, up to now all my Leica gear has been second hand and I have had to save up for many years before I could afford my first new Leica.
