This pathway is on the hill above our city, next to my home. It leads up to our fort and is the end of a long hiking trail over 200 km long. It offers nice forest, vantage points over the city and a parklandscape. Leica Q with a domelike lensflare
Hi, I was wondering if anyone has any info that could help me. My name is Paul Wright and I am researching / trying to understand, the effect of how logo’s affect desirability, hence thinking of Leica. It's the 'red spot' logo that fascinates me. I have stories of people adding a red spot sticker to a camera so that people think it is Leica and other stories of people covering it so it appears to me that others don’t think they are showing off. Such a tiny, simple logo that has such sway is amazing to me. I can't seem to find a definitive when it was first used, who came up with it (if known at all), why they added it, etc. The first example I can find of it is on the S1 model in the mid 70’s with the name Leitz in it and from 1984 the M6 had Leica within the dot. Are these the earliest examples? What I really need help from though is expert’s thoughts on why/how it became so iconic for these cameras. I would love to hear any thoughts or theories from any informed sources on people who love these cameras. Have I come to the right place?
