I do use Soft Releases on all my Leicas, I consider them indispensable. Tom has
even been so kind as to provide me with some special editions--a lot cheaper than
Leica special editions!

But since I also use Tom's new Rapidgrip, which has a socket for a spare Soft
Release, I usually take off the release and put it into that socket if I know that
I will not be using my Leica for several hours.
