Thanks Julian,

I picked the camera up today and I see what you mean about it not being
especially difficult to figure out. - complex it is not! I use a
polaroid back on my Hasselblad and the rangefinder is just like the ones
on my M's, only not as bright. The Leica-style parallax correction was a
nice surprise, however.

I'm not too worried about the lens - it's going to be used for grip &
grins indoors with on camera flash, so I'm not exactly pushing technical
envelopes. :-)

I'll try to remember the shutter cocking thing.
