    Dan, that's a bit of a nonsense.

    One can easily imagine how many requests these companies have on a daily basis.

    "I am going to Disney on Ice with my daughter. I absolutely NEED a 200-400 VR for a day. In exchange, I'll mention you in my Facebook Timeline and I'll drive you business in no time. I have 274 friends!"

    "Dear Canon, I will be shooting Cirque du Soleil this week-end, on some Tri-X that Kodak gave me for free. Please lend me a 50 f1.2 and I'll have a good word for you on various internet forums"

    I mean, really. How does this sound?

    Ned, you don't have or need all the details. It was in the works for weeks, they dropped the ball in ways I am not going to go into on here or even in a PM. I know you love Leica and I did too in shooting tens of thousands of color slides with it, but for black and white and especially digital, different story.

    Say what you want, I have nothing else to say about the matter.

    I wonder what kind of trade in I might get on my two Zorki 4K's?

    Dan, I really didn't mean to be disrespectful. But those companies really do get insane amounts of insane requests. In the end they must stick to the business end of things.

    Yes I love Leica equipment but I'm also fully aware that I could come up with the same results with just any camera, in the end.

    I'm sad for the outcome ypu had with Leica but I guess it could have been expected, to some extent.
