That's better then a pro asking you "how do you like your Hexar?" (referring
to the original Hex, not the RF).'s a Leica I say.

"Oh", then (big pause) " you know anything about the Hexar?"

But how's this for humiliating:

"Can you take a picture for me ?"


"Nooooo....use my camera, (handing me an Cannon Sure-Shot) it's newer."
