Reminds me of a conversation with a well-known photojournalist from
Newsday, John Long (also past president of the National Press
Photographer's Association) who snorted "Motor drive, a waste of money. I
hardly ever use one." Then he said something about it being a crutch.

Well, I can agree there are times when a motor can get in the way. Tom A.
seems to have come up with the perfect alternative for the M. I'm holding
out for one for the R8. :-)
