    She's back, better than ever, and in a new set of clothes! Thanks to Carol Miller of Flutot's Camera Repair for the great CLA and rangefinder recalibration, to Morgan Sparks of www.cameraleather.com for the new Indian Red Kid Skin coat, and to Gordy Coale for the great leather wrist strap. Retina IIa's are such a pleasure to use, it's good to have baby back! :smile:

    A thing of beauty Bob! The cameraleather products are great. I was going to get the same covering for my black Yashica Electro, but got the red lizard skin instead. Never used Carol's services but from what I hear, she does great work.

    Have fun!

    "Like a glove"

    I've done several of Morgan's kits and they have all been perfect.
