I've always wanted a Leica. It has always represented technical excellence and professional status. Something to aspire to, if I only had 8K for the body only and another 2-5K for lenses. But I'm reading reviews of cameras and discovering a growing opinion that they're not any better than some of the high end cameras made by Nikon, Canon, Sony and others. My D850 with a Nikkor 24-70 f2.8 can match the image quality of a Leica. And certain fine mirrorless cameras can compete for Leica for compactness. I now think Leica is a commodity fetish, like a Range Rover, which is not any better than a Toyota Four Runner, but costs more. Argue with me.
