I must say that my experience with LHSA is more positive. I have acquired two of
my most treasured pieces of Leica gear from the catalogue--an M3 from a guy in
Germany and a 35mm Summilux ASPH from a seller in the USA. The mail delay did
not seem to matter.

And I really enjoy the magazine. My membership is $60/year as far as I recall,
so I am not sure how you come up with the $25/issue figure (unless you are
talking Canadian dollars).
