jim,,,
i thought at the biggining that u characterize me as one who colectes leicas and linhofs, i have only two cameras now which are workhourses.
u know my cameras are not popular at all here in israel, and many doesnt even realize that i hold in my hand stuff which is more expenssive than nikon f5 or hasselblad h1, and im very happy with it cause i have no intantion to impress ppl with my staff but with what i creat with it.
the "true love" not always belongs to your past list or the harem. sometimes it comes somewhere in the duration of life and u go on living with it.
by the way, i apriciate very much building your own cameras etc. ive done it with the pinhole and that was a true joy and a great photos as well.
