Gracias Felix!

My partner is Spanish so I've been yelling through her. The problem has been
Disefoto. The stupid comments were made by a guy called Dario at Disefoto. I
went to Arpi which put me onto Fotoservicio, who took the camera and sent it
to Leica Germany via Disefoto. Fotoservicio and Disefoto have shown no
interest at all - 'wait and see' is all they can say.

Where is Casanova? I buy my consumables from Arpi, but if you can recommend
a decent technician in Barcelona or a pro shop which is good on customer
relations I'd be very interested.

Give me an email when you come to Barcelona next. Perhaps we could start a
Spanish Leica Society! BTW did you know that the Salgado exhibition comes to
La Pedrera soon.

It has been a learning experience! Themain problem is that my Spanish isn't
good enough to argue, so I rely on my partner. This idiot also said there
was a fault in the meter of the camera (M4-2 right?) which is why it was
taking so long (also said that leica Germany don't repair 'old' cameras very
often). Compare this to going straight to Leica UK last week and being
entertained whilst they fixed a problem in another body. NEVER again!


Hi Julian

My  spanish is definitevelly really good. May I help you with your stupid
clerk? My thelephon number is 639776831. Do not doubt to contact me if you
think it wouild be necessary? I know Disefoto which is the Leica agent in
Spain. There are also well trained guys overhere, the problem is to find out
them. I also know Casanova one of the bigger photo shop in Barcelona. I was
in PMA wiht Mr.Casanova and perhaps they may help you too. I just own, up
the moment, a M6 and a Summicron 50mm but I feel solidary.

Kind regards
