Sorry, too many reformatted hard drives that go back that far. And I really
didn't care all that much about the G. I saw it early on at a
photojournalist's conference and was unimpressed with the bodies. The
lenses I'm sure are pristine performers (and quite neutral as Blake claims)
but they're too slow for me. A rangefinder cries out for fast lenses. 

But I'm still on Compuserve, but I haven't talked with Blake for a while
now. He's not real happy with me always calling his lenses blue. :-)
Seriously, I'll try to contact him and ask him what his role is. 

Note Tom Shea confirms my claim.

He doesn't have much of a reputation, or so I've heard.
