Better make that more than one filing cabinet. Count that as a "Me too!"

BUT, as I've written here before, if you had more than one M6 and you 
get an M7 you will soon need more than one M7. And having two M7s has 
been a very good thing for me, because one of mine went screwy on me 
(electronics - early production). Leica is replacing the camera, no 
problem. Am I soured on the experience? NOT!

M7 rulez :-)
