I got my new faux-old-Leica leather straps this week and am delighted--if I remember correctly, $19 is about what I paid for the original in around 1972, but these are better made, with better leather (the old stuff was thin and soft, but quickly started wearing out), some detailing missing on the original, such as slight thinning where the strap makes tight turns near the rivets, and much better hardware. Given that I've been looking for new old stock, dealers' junk boxes, etc., for a year for something like this and not found it until now, I don't see how leather strap fans can avoid getting one. Someone asked today what the address was to get them. It's email@example.com - --Michael Darnton _________________________________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free E-mail from MSN Hotmail at http://www.hotmail.com.
