Well that's it, then.  Using a Leica is supposed to be an out-of-body 
experience.  By the way, I have always been left-eyed.  I stumbled on a 
simple technique for shooting without removing the camera from my eye, while 
using an old M3DS.  Two or three short winding strokes work well with any 
wind lever.  The worst side effect is that I get thumb prints on my right 
spectacle lens.  
Also, if you like the C***n P, you would probably enjoy using an L1 or, if 
you really have a wind lever problem, a VT.  Very nice finder system, if you 
can live without framelines, and smaller than a P.

Wind on!
