Subject: [Leica] Scew 'em!
Date: Sat, 28 Nov 1998 17:37:28 EST

Hi All,

My first "real" camera was my father's IIc and Elmar 50 3.5 bought just before
he left Germany for the US in 1950. I still have this camera, and it still
works perfectly. The lens takes extraordinarily fine pictures. Therefore, one
might say:

1. Leica produces cameras which are anachronisms in today's market.
2. Those who use anachronisms are them selves anachronistic.
3. The LUG is therefore a list for anachronists.
4. The most anachronistic Leicas are the basic Barnack designs, the last of
which are the scew mount Leicas.
5. Therefore, the most suitable topics for the LUG are those that deal with
screw mount Leicas.

See - Walter has me writing in list form now... 

With tongue firmly in cheek,

Will von Dauster
