    I'm going to buy an ALC MP for my 60th birthday so people will think I'm crazy and, hopefully, leave me alone.

    Aha! but I wasn't talking about Leica users. I was talking about Leicaphiles, or as I spell it, "Leicaphools" (those who see things that aren't there). They're related to "Audiophools" (those who hear what is not there), who buy things like "pre-tested fuses" and special wood knobs to go on the volume control pot, for $300.

    As for Linhofs, when I use my Linhof I always wear a shirt which says"My other camera is a Deardorff".

    What are the 5 year online purchase prices for M3,M2,M4,M5,M6, and used MP bodies? Stable or down?

    Of course, anyone who is serious about image quality isn't fooling with the little bitty pieces of film the Leica takes anyway. I've never been happy with image quality in prints larger than say 10"x15" from 35, and prefer 8"x12" as a max. enlargement. This includes images from the Leicas I had. It's not about sharpness but tonality, after a certain degree of enlargement the smoothness goes away.

    I believe the quality of a print and the quality of its content are two distinct and separate matters. Confusing these clouds a lot of discussions.

    A buddy of mine claimed he could hear sounds above 20khz. Yet, I had to repeat nearly everything that I said to him. I guess his hearing didn't extend below 20khz.

    Oneguy, your cameras sound great, I love Yashica and Rollei stuff, especially the TLR box stuff. Just make sure they get good use out of you.
    Thank you, the TLR's have become my favorite cameras but I have never used or owned a camera that I did not like

    I agree completely. Technical quality is easy, I like to be certain it's there for when I capture the other kind.

    Well, it's really nice to have both of course, but I've seen more than a few pictures weak on the technical side that were still powerful images. Even that Leica saint Bresson produced a lot of stuff of lesser technical quality. But we see his photographs (and those of others) through the goggles of history and their fame and our nostalgia. I wish my photographs were good enough that they could be crap at the same time...
