Man, if Leica gave away bars of gold, this forum would complain about how their polished.
But all this talk about 360 pano selfies has nothing to do with me and though it probably exists I don't know of many professionals that make their living off of selfies, so I take that stuff with a tiny grain of thought, though for personal fun, I can see their advantages, just not in my world.
Hey man, I didn't know there was such a thing as an f'ing panoramic selfie. In fact I didn't really know there was such a thing as a selfie until my 3 year old started to expect me to hand the
phone to *him* so he could take pictures of *us*. I've also tried handing him the real camera with not so great success, although there is definitely entertainment to be had from watching a 3 year old wield a D3x The wikipedia article on selfies make extremely interesting reading.
Manufacturers note the bottom is falling out of the camera market, as users prefer cellphones. On the other hand, the selfie is trending with young users doing selfies for 30% of their images. But "real""cameras" cannot do selfies. Notice a "correlation"?
I agree no *photographer* make his living from selfies; but then few photographers these days make their livings exclusively with Leicas, so I think we can chart this conversation up to Saturday night syndrome.
BTW, anyone wants to swap a Leica S2 against my Nikon D4 and some lenses btw, I'd be delighted. In fact I'll even take a Canon 1Dx, or MF, see my ad in For Sale.
