Its "specific areas" which I noticed was missing from the picture.
Rollei vs. Leica to shoot what?
City scapes?
Street photography?
Portraits on the sidewalk?
Landscapes?
Tourist pictures?
A discussion of tools with no mention for the jobs they are intended to be
used for gets me nowhere.
To be able to see some of a persons work is also a big help when they are
talking about  this or that camera they'd get use out of. A URL. I google
imaged Thor was not able to find anything. No blurry Contax shots. Nothing.
So I cant image what a Leica could to for his work.
Also the price point and Leica glass varies tremendously on how old and used
it is. They go back to the 1930's. You can pick your price point.
I don't picture a millionaire using a Leica on the street I picture a guy
with holes in his pants using brassy gear who bought it used a long time ago
and it not likely to sell it any time soon if ever.
