The problem with your point, John, is that LHSA IS, after all, the "Leica
Historical Society of America", as opposed to the "Cosina Hysterical
Society of America".  Steve's point is well taken.  We EXPECT to have Leica
flacks in our midst.  But Tom Abrahamson has obtained a favourable position
within the LHSA which he uses to flog Cosina products.  And, as the song
says, "this ain't right".

I'd like to hear from some of the LHSA leadership on this point.
