I love the Leicas. I think so far, a Leica has been the only camera that disappears when I'm "in the zone". It's a rectangle in front of my eye and a button to press, and I don't feel like I'm operating a device. But I agree with you Mike. When people ask me about this camera, I ask them what kind of photography they like to do. To the few ones who seem really interested in rangefinders, I suggest they get a Canonet first and shoot a few rolls, to see if it is for them. To the others, I typically recommend a Canon if they want full frame. At least the same quality for a fraction of the price, in a more versatile package. As much as I like Leicas myself, I wouldn't be using one if I had to buy it. My current M9 is an exchange for prints I did with a friend. He's a dentist :)
Darn. Here I was, about to order a Pentax K3, when I see that photo of the Olympus next to a black Pentax MX, my favorite SLR of all times. I have lots of Pentax lenses, but now I'm thinking about the OM-D. Or if I'm going m43, should I get a GX7? Too many options! If all we had to buy were, say, Smenas, I would be outside shooting already.
I had no idea what photo of mine you were talking about. I'm still not sure... Perhaps this one? http://photoblog.jbuhler.com/toronto-2012-3/ Lots of weird juxtapositions in my photos, but this one is the one that both was accidental (the guy moved in front of the camera in a way I hadn't anticipated) and kind of matches your description.

You can say similar things about other makers as well. Look what happened to the VW transporter: http://www.influx.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/gallery/vw-transporter/transporter_02.jpg (not my photo) In 1992, the Transporter lost the rear engine, the forward control layout, and its soul. You can guess which one I am driving down to South America: http://www.vanenvan.com/the-vehicle-the-electric-pony/
