Ben has written very eloquently of things Nikon.  :)

So Ben like a good sport, tell us how much do Nikon pay you for pumping
their product on the Leica Users Group? :) Of all the talk about the
brilliance of the Nikon metering system and it's 1000's of thingies to make
an assessment for an exposure, that any one with a few years, well OK a
whole bunch of years experience can call the exposure almost by holding a
wet finger in the air to measure the direction of the light and intensity.

If this seems silly, just imagine how many of the LUG members think of the
on going diatribe about the values of the "N" camera over the Leica. I
might add, I have used both Nikon and Canon as a professional photographer
for many years. However my camera of choice happens to be Leica, M and R8,
several bodies of both, as they serve me well for the myriad of assignments
I do and have done.

Think about the posts of this past few days, they are generally using a
bunch of space about a camera which many of us have used or use along with
our Leica's so the posts seem to be somewhat irrelevant at best! :)

have a nice "N" camera weekend! :)
