Just to follow up my earlier M6TTL battery scare story: after three sets 
in a week or so I am now on my fourth set which has so far lasted about a 
month. Maybe the earlier cells were duds..

OTOH I note that the TTL gives about 8hrs contiuous use per set of 
batteries as opposed to 20 hours per set for the earlier M6s as per 
Leica's spec sheets. This is odd and not very comforting since the TTL 
will not operate with flash (through or socket or hot shoe) without fresh much for the new efficient digital circuits.

Oh and I still turn the shutter speed dial te worng way instinctively.

Back to the Caol Ila.



P.S. the worst whisky I have ever tasted is produced here in Shanghai by 
Seagrams - seven stars or 7 somethings. A headache produced just from the 
smell of it...
