    Nahh. You can make it a 2-man club. I have been known to come up with the occasional blank space when I develop my film.

    no leica

    I never warmed up to my Leica 3f and this is one of the reasons. Later, I bought a Leica M2R and purchased a lens filter for it but no lens cap. I really liked that camera.

    He cannot put the camera in a bag because then you cannot see the red dot and no one would know he is carrying a Leica.
    You seem to imply a difference where none exists...

    You'll need at least ISO 400 film to shoot through the lens cap I think.

    Personally, I never use a lens cap, so no worries there. The word Leica and shooter do not often go together :]

    Don't worry about the red dot. No one I meet knows the difference between a Leica and a crab apple anyway. I mean, pictures, that's why you have a phone, right?

    Oh, there are still a few of us that get more photos than blank spots on our film.

    Though I do have to say that nowadays I use my ZI far more than my Leicas. Metal shutter curtains are far more forgiving of walking around with no lens cap than cloth ones are.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    The shots you don't get because you forgot to take the lens cap off your Leica are visibly better than the shots you don't get when you forget to take the lens cap off your Fuji.
    I shoot digital when I have to (most of those shots end up here) and film (occasionally one of those shots ends up here) when I want to.

    Now that is pure conceptual art. Why not enter your blank Fuji film for the lesser Turner Prize?
