    Didn't notice this when I read the article.

    Probably they felt a proper Leica is needed to do a photography book on stuff related to heritage hahaha

    What lens is that which allows him to take a selfie on an M body? I thought most lenses have a minimum focussing distance of 0.7m?

    The self-taken photo may be out of focus. In addition to camera shake due to improper way of holding the camera.

    Please keep your other hand visible when you take a selfie.

    Avoid jerky movement for a nice sharp photo.

    The girl taking the selfie got very nice shaven armpit. I wonder what she use to make it look so squeaky clean.

    Hate to use condescending words but this really deserves the word Dumb.

    Idiot blasphemed upon the spirit of rangefinders.

    Look at the composition on the LCD behind, the left girl is smiling but she is not included in the pic, that's a way to insult people.
