Hi Marvin,

Yep he sure has another good one! I have the prototype and have used it on
both the M6, R8 and an R7. It sure makes a difference in shutter releasing
by soft touch.

I had one of the "N" releases on my Leica's but they just were slight
little release extenders, whereas Tom's soft release is very well designed
and produced, even as prototypes.

I sent him an order for 5 as I hate taking things off and screwing them
into other bodies. Just like I hate fiddling around changing lenses and
that's why I have three bodies of everything. 4 in a few cases. If you
fiddle with one body you loose too many photo opportunities. I don't mean
peeling paint and non-breathing things, but hummman beings do things! :)

I'm sure he'll come back from Tokyo to a buch of orders!
