Thanks df, I am glad you like it!

Thanks Lee for your words,

I don't know whether I will ever be able to exploit Leitz glass to the limit, as I have an aversion to tripods - I am very much a hand held man, as it gives me great flexibility. This of course downgrades what theoretical quality I can get from the lens...

HOWEVER I primarily did not buy the Leica for its lenses - I just ALWAYS wanted a superb mechanical camera - especially the R 6.2. So please people don't get into arguments about all this - I am having fun, and I hope so have you!
