Javed, you are getting the bug ;-) soon you will have an assortment 
of M bodies and lenes, BEWARE THE VIRUS, unless you have a very 
forgiving partner ;-)

Oh and by the way, the M series glass is aided by the lack of mirror 
movement etc, but does produce the best images in my stable, though 
the R glass and R8 come in VERY VERY close, as you would expect. Now 
where did I put the brochure on the Tri-elmar and that magy thing !!
