Subject: Re: [Leica] Is my SF-20 dead?

My SF-20 sent dead in September while taking some pictures at an awards 
dinner.  It would charge and all the lights came on, but it would not fire, 
even with the test button.  Even though it was out of warranty, Leica 
Canada fixed it without charge.

  I hate using flashes for just this reason.  Should have had the Noctilux 
and fast film instead.
