    Ah, bet you've eaten them before LOL. Didn't you have a film M before you got the 8? Very cool though--looking forward to seeing what you are getting.

    Jono, I remember your previous oath. That M7 is a real beauty. It will be wonderful to have you posting to the analog threads.

    Just don't eat the camera, eh? it's hard on the teeth. ]'-)

    Lovely thing. Enjoy it!

    My favorite M was a black M4-P that Sherry Krauter had gone through shortly before I bought it. I enjoyed its meterless simplicity and feel, it always seemed to make better photos for me than the M6 TTL and later M bodies did.

    Someday I'll nab a digital M, perhaps. I like shooting with the M, not sure if I want to go that way again. I'm pretty happy with the work I'm doing and the equipment I have to do it right now.

    Funny, but of all the cameras I've owned, the one the reminds me the most today of my film Leica Ms is the Olympus E-1. Weird, eh?

    Fine retro move, Jono. Even though I am not using it, I can't bring myself to sell my nearly mint M6. It's just sooo Leica!

    Sorry, Jono, but I'm filing you under "normal" -- maybe "normal that I envy".

    But, about that HP5 thing ... Try Efke 100 in PMK 1.2.100.

    Congrats on your new toy.

    Thanks everybody for responding so well to my imminent indigestion!

    Hi Diane
    Well - before the M8 came out I spent a month shooting only film - just to see what I thought (it was an M6, which I bought secondhand and sold at a profit).
    So I didn't have to eat anything then

    HI Vivek
    Well, perhaps it's always a good idea to upset the applecart a little!

    Hah - you lot all have such good memories . . I can hardly remember what I said yesterday, let alone what anyone else said!
    Thank you for the kind words . . . scanning is happening!

    HI Vieri
    I've been looking at your Egypt shots - excellent stuff. there'll be posts soon enough! Unfortunately your lovely Zeiss 25 has had to go to help finance this (not so good on the M9) the 50 sonnar has been nabbed by Silas, and he's shooting it on the Olympus pen as a fast portrait lens, and on his Bessa R2a with film.

    Thanks . . . . just something else to fill up the time I don't have to spare! (added to which Emma ordered a new puppy last night )

    Hi Godfrey
    I'll keep my teeth well away from it (cheapskates didn't put a sapphire LCD on the back!)

    I was happy with what I'd got too - blame the boy, he put me up to this!
    I won't use Aperture priority all that much, but it's really nice to have for those times when thought is not so important as action!

    Quite agree about the E1 . . . mine still gets used a lot, mostly with the 14-54 (Silas again!).

    Thank you William . . . you may not know it, but you are partly responsible for this decision! Which means, of course, that I'll blame you if it doesn't work out!

    HI There - I can quite understand, though in this house everything has to be moved on to help pay for the next thing! At least this M7 was at a sensible price, so I shouldn't lose too much if I decide I don't like it.

    Thank you. I'll be trying a few different films to get me going . . . I'll bear this in mind though
