I love My TTL. >black color body and I >understand that there are at least 3 different models. Well, only 2 right now. The .72 and the .85 (also known as the hi-mag) The .58 is really only a rumor now, and is supposed to be anounced offically soon. The .72 has framelines for 28,35,50,75,90,135 The .85 has framelines for 35,50,75,90,135 The .85's image is bigger (higher magnification) when you look through it, also making the rangefinder more accurate (as if it isint allready...) >I do mostly >wide angles stuff so I'm leaning towards the new .58, however I also >do some portraits and landscapes so maybe the .72 is better for me? The .58 is not supposed to have more framelines and is really for eyeglass users. As for landscapes and portraits and stuff, Rangefinders don't work like SLR's. Trust me. You will see what i am talking about when you get one. If yo can afford it, buy a 35mm AND a 50mm. Just about all of the great Leica photos in the world were taken with those two lenghts. They work so well! Anyway, buy one and get a lens and a TON of film. you will love it! ;) jim Jim Tiemann _________________________________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free E-mail from MSN Hotmail at http://www.hotmail.com.
