Is there a rule about bodies (9)?  How about Leitz ball-and-socket tripod

DT, good luck with the Heliar. It is a great lens -  at the moment I am on my 
second one as a friend of mine shoots jazzmusicians and rock bands and 
decided that my Heliar would complement his 21/2,8 to give that somewhat 
"spaced out" look that these guys have at 4am. - As for "hoarding stuff", I 
do not even want to count - my excuse is of course that I have to have  many 
bodies to test Rapidwinders on. 
 I think that Cosina deserves great credit for making the Heliar and the 
Skopar and particularly for making something that is affordable to us Leica 
 Now, your ball head collection is something else! I thought I was bad at 7 
of them, but 24!!! It is good to know that someone else is even more 
afflicted than I am!
All the best,
Tom A
