    There is now a part 2 as well. I tried to find the clip about buying a digital mf...way too funny!

    Best,

    That vid should be a sticky. Everything you ever needed to know about rangefinders and the folks who use them.

    Easy there, blockend! Perhaps you are confusing rangefinder users with Leica Snobs?!

    As a part time rangefinder user they certainly bring out my inner pedant but yes, you're right. In fact you could dub the video for any camera snob and it would still work.

    It is not easy buying the stuff you "should".

    This reminds me of the episode with the man walking into a HiFi store wanting to buy a "grammophone" in "Not the 9 o'clock News"?

    Had to wipe away the tears of laughter after watching both of those

    Is Part 3 going to mention how you have to say 'cron and 'lux and for some reason aren't supposed to refer to them by their proper names?

    I lol-ed at "bessas are for pussies." The other day some awful young hippie in Burlington started making all sorts of passive aggressive comments about all the Leica's he owned as compared to my bessa. Then he want on and on about how great facebook is.

    "It is traditional and not to be questioned." Truly words to live by.
