If I think of laying-out M7 $$$$ it would be to acquire the electronically
controlled shutter speed, camera to camera match of shutter speed, than for
any form of auto exposure.  I find with modern 'chromes if I shoot one body
with 90mm and one with 35mm, my f 5.6 is on one side on one lens and on the
other side on another and the two cameras are within tolerance but off over
and under a 1/125 sec then the slides on a lightbox appear different and the
client says...what.

Oh well, it's a lot of money and business isn't that good...I guess I'll
just read about all you folks using yours.

Happy snaps,
Steven Alexander
