reference to a group where "general musings on the industry,"  etc, 
etc.would be appropriate and welcome.  It would be nice to keep 
discussions here relevant to Leica.  There is enough trivia to wade

current R or M models for photojournalism or other serious photographic 
endeavors?  I would be interested in trading ideas or comparing notes 
with someone along those lines.  Mike G.
