Reminds me of an early "portrait" episode during which I was trying 
mightily to impress a very attractive young woman.  Went through the whole 
Richard Avedon routine with an M3 and Summarit, probably 20 frames or so, 
with a lot of theatrical bobbing and weaving (hey, I was very young), at 
which point, she asked:  "is that metal thing supposed to be on the front 
of the lens?"

Haven't made that mistake since.
