My friendly Leica dealer say it is always like that with special 
models. First everybody _say_ they want them, then the dealers can't 
get them off the shelf, and once they're gone everybody asks for them 
and prices go up. I'm not really interested. I have two M6 bodies and 
three lenses, cant carry more, don't need more. What I need is divine 
inspiration, then finer grained high speed film with excellent 
tonality and sharpness. And higher speed fine grain film...
