Don's right. During this week a mate from work is bringing his X100 in for me to play with, and if it feels right then I'm to be counted among the elect....well once I can find one in stock here in Australia.
So the day-dream might just become a reality. The bigger Leica dream, well that will have to wait until my superannuation comes in....in 25-30 years time
Brian, it's wonderful to see you here - and I can't wait to see your pictures! You've been missed by many. Although there are lots of familiar faces here, there are also members who don't know you... So if you can, please do us the honor of an official unofficial intro in the good old Welcomes and Intros forum. You know it's in my DNA to write this.It's all true... what can I say - I couldn't resist this beauty
And to be back in-sync with my two best on-line friends, feels like the Universe is back in balance
Love the spork, does it get much use?I really want a titanium M9. I don't want one because it's rare or exclusive or any of that rot.
I want one because I love my M8 and would love an M9.
And I also happen to love titanium. I keep my purple anodized titanium spork at my desk, and I write with titanium-nibbed fountain pens.
If Leica ever decided to do a purple anodized titanium M-series camera, I'd so be there.
If you happened across a Ti M9, I'd have a go anodising it for you - I might need a few goes to get the voltage ramps right, but you'd be good to shout me a couple of spares?If Leica ever decided to do a purple anodized titanium M-series camera, I'd so be there.
Ah yes, the splayd. I grew up with those too. In fact my wife was so impressed with her 'in laws' splayd set that we had to get a set of our own!We have had the fore-runner called a splayd as an essential part of our cutlery drawer since the 70s.
