    Make sure you buy that nuctilux lens, because that bright aperture sure helps you focus...

    Not one using an SLR, or one who leaves the lens cap at home when shooting...

    TTL metering has saved me from doing this more than once. I do hope, though, that if I looked down at the camera as many times as the guy in the video, I would eventually notice on my own!

    They are so inexpensive too.

    Film photography? This term kills me. As if there's another kind!

    The rule is remove cap, fit uV and hood then place camera in gbag.

    Remember to clean uV ocassionally.

    With a M5, M6, or later you do not need to do this.

    Canon rangefinder same rule... etc.

    How did you come to the conclusion that this is a serious Leica SHOOTER. I think he is a serious Leica CARRIER but not necessarily a shooter.

    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.

    +1!! I am curious, though, how high should one set the ISO in order to shoot through the lens cap, and obtain a good contrast black and white negative? I have always preferred taking the easy path and just removing (and leaving in my camera bag) the lens cap. However, if one can, in fact, shoot through, the cap, then I (and countless other rangefinder shooters) wouldn't have to be concerned about losing lens caps (and those damned Leica caps are often north of $30 per!).
    Some Nikons (F6, F5, F3P, F3HP, F2ASx4, F2A, F2 and a D800), with Ai/Ais Nikkors ranging from 15mm to 600mm; Leicas (M6X2), with Leitz glass from 28 to 90mm and a pair of Hasselblads (500c/ms), with Zeiss glass from 50 to 250mm. A bit of stuff for a no-longer practicing professional, but justifiable for a now-converted hobbyist who absolutely loves taking/making pictures.
