This is pretty much the story of my life.  I'm going to check with my
dealer and see if I can get a few bucks back, although I doubt I'll be
successful.  I think she is at the mercy of Leica on this.

BTW I got a 16Mb smart card today.  With resolution set on fine and a
picture size of 640X480 it shows 92 exposures available.

I'm leaving for New Hampshire and Rhode Island Friday.  Taking the digilux
along with an M6, 35/2 and 50/2.  I haven't been back to NH for about 3 1/2
years so I'm really looking forward to it.
