I agree 5k is a lot of coin. But this is a "lot" of cameras. The M4 and 2 nikon bodies. An F3 Series and a F2AS which look nice.
But I'm not interested in the nikons, I have nikons F2, two F3's and a pair of F4's. I wanted a rangefinder that was tough and will last.
So if I win at $1250, I'll sell off the nikons. Then I can look for a Leica lens, which will most likely be a Voigtlander M mount.
Thanks for your feedback, appreciate it!
