    Gary, I can tell you right now.......I have owned or shot with most of those lenses, and the Leica glass will be superior to any of the Canon or Nikkor lenses.

    You will be [I]very[I] happy with the 50 Cron and the two Elmarits, they are right up there with some of the best lenses you can buy.

    The phrase "battle scarred workhorse" comes to mind. Amazing!

    I haven't gotten the hang of using a rangefinder yet. Guess it's something I would need to live with and use regularly to get comfortable using. I do appreciate the feel of a smaller and lighter camera.....although the reassuring heft of my R8 with motor drive is also nice.

    Just running thru my first roll of film with the R8 today and I was immediately taken with the brightness of the viewfinder and the simplicity of the controls. It feels just right to me.

    Gorgeous, William! An old and trusted friend, I'm sure.

    No strap, though, has it been retired?
