I read the stuff at the chambers website. I am actually puzzzled.
After reading I think the only solution for Mr. Kaufman is to hope for a graceful end without too much pain. Probably high time to contact a paliiative care unit.
Best is to hand everything to Sony - the technology leader and obviously the only player who really knows what he is doing - and hope that they accept the free offer - out of mercy, though this is usually not a value found in the japanese business wars.
But then the hypnosis falls off, I shrug myself several times, get some fresh air - it is a cool night tonight. And the bad ghosts are gone.
And all that remains is a single thought: WTF, why does anybody write such BS ........
If I was rich, and had invested several millions in Leica, then I would probably be interested in stuff like that. But why does Chambers write this ? How is he involved ? As a photographer he could simply use and enjoy the camera - or rather not if he finds it so terrible. But what/who does he think he is, that he has to offer this sort of advice ? Does he really think that his advice is so good, if anybody followed it, then Leica would be as successful as e.g. Sony ?
These business wars leave me cold - as long as I can remember there were Sony products. They always claimed to be the best and most innovative (no matter what the product was). Some products had a huge success - but what does it mean to me ? And all are gone now ....
Some Sony products offered a lot of fun (walkman, TVs, etc.), but strange enough the cameras were never among them.
Many Apple products replaced them for me. So for me Sony is rather a loser (to Apple or Samsung). It will be interesting to see what the next few years will bring .....
