The Online Photographer: The Leica as Teacher
"A year with a single Leica and a single lens, looking at light and ignoring color, will teach you as much about actually seeing photographs as three years in any photo school, and as much as ten or fifteen years (or more) of mucking about buying and selling and shopping for gear like the average hobbyist." This is not a bad point.

Epson R-D1 Review
"Advancing the lever after each exposure makes that exposure seem more distinct and more deliberate." I too thought this weird when I played with Lars' example. but you only have to use it once to understand why it's there.

A Critic at Large: Candid Camera: Reporting & Essays: The New Yorker
"With a Leica, all you hear is the shutter, which is the quietest on the market. The result—and this may be the most seductive reason for the Leica cult—is that a photograph sounds like a kiss." Wonderful New Yorker piece on the cult of Leica.
