Subject: [Leica] Again, Prad RT?

Asked about the new RT a couple of months ago, with little 
response. Too new, perhaps, so lemme try again:

Though I'd love to take advantage of the 2002 deals going 
around; it would suit my personal projection needs fine, I almost 
have to go the US Carousel route. The storage efficiency of the 
Euro type cassettes would be preferable, as storage space in this 
new house was not as well thought out as the rest of it. Alas, all 
the foregoing considered, and due to my need to swap trays with 
others for both club and corporate projection, I'm really wed to 
the big circles!

Has anyone any time with the RT yet? My understanding is that 
Leica had an embarassing time with it during their RT roll out. Is it 
achieving a reliable reputation, so far, or are the numbers not yet 

The price is a put off, but then, a high end Kodak with a good 
Schneider of whatever lens wont come cheaply either.
