Hey, Brougham!

Yes, it's like running into old friends at different parties. :)

Ha!  I'll bear that in mind.

Don't feel too bad: at the last camera swap, I spent several minutes trying
to wrestle a 35/1.4 Nikkor onto an F3 body until the gentleman behind the
counter politely pointed out it was a non-AI 35.  Oops.

How's the 35 Summicron working out on the high mag M6 for you?  Still no

Nice to see you here,
