Actually, it's not specifically Leica cameras that can do this it's rangefinders in general, the key difference is that you always see what's going on. On an SLR, for a very brief moment after you've pressed the shutter you won't be able to see through the viewfinder so in theory it's possible that you've "missed the shot". The cameras are also extremely quiet which makes you stand out a lot less if you're in to street photography. If all you do is street work these cameras are expensive but pretty much perfect, for anything else the rangefinder system (in my opinion) is just too much of a hindrance and too inflexible. Obviously, a good photographer will get great results from literally anything.
