    Bjorke, that is such a beautiful shot!!!
    What limitations does the Contax G2 have? Do you know what the Contax Aria is like?
    I saw a G2 recently on EBay for $2,400 AUS including 3 lenses.
    Cheers, Nicole

    Bjorke,
    I use the same roughly the same technique with the back focus button on my Contax 645, the difference being that once it focuses, you take your finger off the button.

    Nicely written article with the right amount of humorous irreverence. I do object to the term "Leica collector" rather than "Leica user", perjoratively implying that Leica owners don't "use" their cameras...

    Besides, I've discovered a method to get over my depression when ever I get down about emotionally buying my Millennium M6 for far too much money to replace an M4 that cost me $525.00 new, and which I've used enough (the Millennium) to turn into a "user"... I watch the movie "Eurotrip" which stars a Leica M7 with it's "legendary cloth focal plane shutter" that "makes a Nikon look like a disposable".

    So keep those slings and arrows coming, I'll just selectively tape Eurotrip, eliminating all the human sex scenes and keeping the scenes involving the ultimate sex symbol, the Leica M7...
    Take care,
    Tom

    Well, I've decided to put my pennies away and save up for the M7 anyway and just make do for now. The other option for me is the XPan. I'm not being snobby or anything, just the result from a lot of research and trials, and personal preference.

    I was taught (by my mother, strangely enough) that a lady always retains the option of being snobby. But, she suggested the use of "selective" or "discerning", instead.

    Current Leica lenses may be wonderful for those working in color. In B&W they are harsh and lack the tonality of older lenses and I suspect the Bokeh is not as good. Voigtlander just issued a single coated lens because some B&W workers prefer them to multicoated lenses.

    wouldn't this be correctable with a change of development?

    btw just don't spell it phishing.

    John, that's crap! Just wait till you see what results I can get, once I actually own one!

    Why is it I get excited when I see the 'oldies' posts here on APUG? By oldies, lol, I mean those with over 500 posts so far. It seems there are so many new members I can't keep up and the cosy feel has gone, lol.
    SEAN, HELP! LMAO!
