I never saw myself shooting Leica, I never understood the reasoning behind shooting a camera that was at least double the price of the best camera out there at any given point in time. But as I grew older, photography became stale, boring & predictable. I started searching for something, I wanted photography to be more difficult, I wanted restrictions & simplicity. This is exactly what Leica offers, a camera, that is beautifully simple in execution, back to basics photography. Its more about how you feel shooting it than performance. That said, the M10 is no slouch.
