    Leica "Leica" subreddit on Reddit

    On a different note, this might be the first use I've seen of embedding Reddit posts here and on the Really Dark theme the black background & dark text is not very easy to read. I've got to add it to the To Do list to check the styling for that.

    The plural use of "Gears" in that is throwing my head off a bit.

    Leica "Leica" subreddit on Reddit

    Unfortunately some see the brand more as a status symbol than as a tool. Now, of course, I say that while not having a budget to justify buying into the Leica ecosystem so I say that more as an observation based on the "special edition" versions and how often the brand is name-dropped. Case in...

    My wife & I are having conversations a lot like that. My proposal has been to get a giant rubbish bin in the driveway, toss almost everything into it, and start over. To date the proposal has been met with a fair bit of pushback.

    Hence my comment many posts back about compromise.

    There is a difference between quirky and confusing information overload. Based on the responses I'm seeing, it seems to be a mixture.

    News / Rumor Mirrorless vs. Playstation

    If that holds true I'd be surprised a bit since Sony seemed to be on roll with good market response to their cameras and a delay to new models could hurt that. I guess then in the Sony family the PlayStation folks have more sway then the camera folks. I'm barely taking advantage of my XBox One...

    But that's rub, there are no "drastic" changes being considered, just some clutter reduction*.

    It might not have hit your part of the world yet or might have a different name; here in the US I know that different regions are being staggered in their marketing.

    I'll take a look.
