Hall of Famer
Rangefinderforum? Seems a friendly enough place to me, I'm surprised to hear all that.
"M. Valdemar" was banned from RFF for making funny posts and "tweaking tails". Guilty as charged.
Unfortunately some see the brand more as a status symbol than as a tool
That'll will stir up the "why by a Leica and not buy Leica glass" crowd
>Roger Hicks, but I liked the guy and was really sad when he was diagnosed and went so fast.
I miss Roger Hicks- His wife is a cancer survivor, had it for years. Then lost Roger so quickly.
Roger made a post about one of his first cameras being a Kodak Retina, but could not use it because the counter/wind mechanism was broken. I sent him the parts, had offered to fix it for him. He knew how, just needed parts.
I also miss Tom A- true gentleman. I sent him a Jupiter-3 for his Leica, and a Menopta 53/1.8 for his Nikon RF. He sent me a Nikkor RF lens and some other great stuff.
I've left instructions for my wife to consign my collection through my favorite camera dealer- I've dealt with him for 25 years and his Father before that.
I've bought a couple of cameras off of Ebay and picked up an S4 in person
That really sums things up.
