Welcome back!  I scan the subject lines on the LUG to see if something
interests me, and then I look at the "from" field and read anything with
bdcolen in it, because it always interests me, even if I don't always agree.

Bob -

1. Don't sit by the fireside reviewing negatives;
2. If the results are outstanding, I won't care what lens produced them;
3. True - battery independence is a wonderful thing; but not carrying
film, one has more room to carry extra batteries;
4. What's a screen? :-)

But you will miss that binder of negatives that you can review at a
glance sitting by the fireside. You will miss those brilliant Leica M or
lenses. You will miss the battery independence of the M6. You will miss
brilliant slides you can project across a 6-foot screen. You will miss
immortality of silver images. A Leica M on a shelf: 'Not bloody likely,'
as Eliza
Doolittle says to us all.
