I live in France and travel for my business in East Europ and Russia and
that's true, you don't see very often people with Leica M
First of all the price : common tourists use P&S or SLR.
Maybe because it's unsafe to show an expensive camera and it's not in the
philosophy of the M to be seen or heard.
I mostly carry my M6 under my vest or in a cheap plastic bag (in Russia).
