I always think, I'm not quick enough with MF. With the second film (36), the AF was not working anymore. I don't know exactly what's happened, but the case is still by Canon Germany. I'll have to buy the case from my friend. I've learned my lesson, never again I'll borrow something. The second thing is that such things can always happen, and specially to very complex high tech wares!!! >> Good lesson! The biggest thing I see is that Leica needs a cheap body. The R62 is way overpriced for what it is. Someone buys an R8 they've got 3 choices: take a chance and risk having only one body, buy 2 of em, or pick up an old used one for a spare (what I did, big mistake, it was on death's door and I didn't know it). They need a $400 Japanese mechanical body.
