Subject: [Leica] Discount for LUGers - not with me

<< I'll bet that with a group this size, with the
 purchasing power it appears to have and the Leicaolism many of the members
 clearly have, something could be worked out. >>

There are at least 3 reasons, which are so important
to me, that I will not participate in the fantasied 
type of deal:

1. As many Europeans I'm not used to buy from catalogues, 
and I will not do it in future. I want to touch and feel 
a certain piece of equipment, and if it's that, then it's 
that an no other. And, I agree to pay for the dealer's 

2. I feel it a little cheap to press the dealer of your 
trust for a few bucks when you spend several hundreds or 
thousands at the same time. 

3. Take into account all the M6, R8, and lens complaints 
during the last few months - just within the LUG. I think, 
no dealer (and specially not the dealer of your trust, or 
a LUG or LHSA friend) deserves such a fate.
