Sound advice. In my case it was some 25 years of working with Nikons and Hasselblads before I picked up my first rangefinder (an M4P that I no longer own). For the first year or so, I fought constantly with the camera; using it just wasn't intuitive in the way my Nikons are. But after a year or so of (infrequent) use, the thing gradually became more comfortable to use. That said, to this day, I remain anything but proficient with changing film (I often find my self cussing like a sailor when loading fresh film); possibly one roll in five is loaded on the first attempt. Still, the Leicas are a pleasure to shoot with; I wouldn't part with them for anything.
