I really like the F3 too. Great camera but I could not justify having two systems so I sold the Nikon gear. Leica has stated that they did collaborate in the design of the rangefinder/viewfinder on the Hexar RF. The Hexar RF is also not selling up here in Edmonton either. Quite a few tire kickers but none sold. In the same time period they have sold many more M6-TTLs than normal. John Collier > From: "B. D. Colen" <email@example.com> > > 1.
