    Well Mattie, you made me so friggin' jealous about not having a Leica that I went and got me one! :mrgreen: It's a IIIf red dial body in excellent working and cosmetic shape. Can't wait to feel it in my hands, buddy!

    Now, now terri... Was that an invitation?? :shock: :shock: :blushing: ;)


    Since I don't have a Leica lens on (just yet...) I'll put on the Canon 50/1.8 from the SBIV and see what comes out. :D

    mmmmm how I'd like a Leica. I was just checking over their website the other day, and man those things are expensive when you buy them new. But I bet they've got to feel great to hold. What I'd really like is their R9 with the Digital Modul R. It's swappable between film and digial -- how cool! :drool:
    Some day, when I grow up and become the CEO of a mega-million dollar company, I'll buy myself one of those :sexywink: . But for now, I think I'll keep my hopes to maybe one of those IIIfs or similar for some day.

    They are not that expensive because everyone goes after the M series more. A good user body could cost you between $250 and $450, depending on the seller, condition and rarity. The 'red dial' IIIf usually cost more than the regular 'black dial'.

    Question for you: since I saw your quote about the sushi bar... does your user name unimaxium mean that you like sushi, and especially uni sushi (sea urchin)? :D

    Hehe, no, my name has nothing to do with sushi. The quote is from some funny online cartoon. I wrote a description of my name in the "how do you say your name thread", which you can find here

    Ahha! Cool. But it makes one wonder... There is a connection: sushi=uni, so I thought it might have a hidden meaning.

    Anyway, the camera arrived today, superfast shipping. And it's much more beautiful than the picture I posted on top of this thread. Works very smooth.

    I'm hoping to get a widelux in the next couple days. That's Matt's fault too. :mrgreen:
