looks like it...
No, I don't think so.
I live and work in Hollywood. I'm about to go to work in roughly 2 hours.
Both my life and work circles include people from show business and people who get photographed a lot.
I haven't seen anything like this.
Hey we have Phil Collins daughter Lily Collins rocking the E-PL1!
Seal (who also is a Leica spokesperson)... Lenny Kravitz.. among many celebrities and quite a few movies as well.
Its not a new thing.... I wouldn't say its common though.
Attached is a pic lens I bought from the used counter.. with an unexpected surprise.
PS> the camera in the picture of the OP's link is a Leica M8.
I'd scoff, but I'd buy one if I could afford it. Maybe someday
There's nothing new about celebrities shooting Leicas Celebrity Camera Club (or Nikons, or Rollies, or Hasselblads, or Polaroids)
This is just a melange of old fluff masquerading as an article. Most of the celebs they mention have been known Leica fans for years.
I agree. There's something mystical about the name that makes me want to own one.
Idiotic article. I like the "oops that was actually a picture of a Fuji" disclaimer at the end.
I think it's also worth mentioning that most of the people they're calling out are shooting regular film Ms, not $7k digitals. The sky's the limit with Leica prices, but someone could easily get into a used film M with a good lens or two for less than many of us have into our mu43 systems. I have less money in M than mu43, with one body and two main lenses in each format (though the mu43 has depreciated massively!).
I noticed a M9 in the new Expendables 2 movie.
I watched Spy Game last week again (Robert Redford and Brad Pitt); Pitt seems to shoot an M4 and a Nikon most of the time. At least they picked appropriate cameras for the period.
