"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.
