    A good whisky has a negative effect on a good lens, and I speak from experience.

    I thought I wanted a Leica M, dreamed about it for years. Then, when about to retire I took a bunch of cameras, obtained over the last two decades, give or take, and sold them at a photo swap meet. That gave me the money to get a M4-2 (that looked nice but had been serviced by a tractor mechanic) and a couple of used CV lenses. The lenses are really very good, I never had the money to even consider Leitz lenses and I doubt these give up very much, if any, to Leica glass.

    Now the kicker. You may find, that after a time, the having is not as pleasureable as the wanting. It is not logical, but it is often true. (credit: Mr Spock)

    Oh, the M4-2 that looked so nice? It didn't work for long. Purchased from a privite party at the photo swap meet so no recourse. Had to spend another $200 to have Youxin Ye to put it right. A word to the wise. Purchase from a reliable vendor with a warranty.

    If I wanted a Leica my wife would be all for me getting one, she knows I'm not a shopaholic because I've only bought 2 cameras in the past 25 years and if I had a real need for one she would be happy for me to buy one, but ironically I've never had any desire for one.
