I don't really blame the dealers for being a bit mum.  I remember
several dealers being drug burning from the room.  Don Chatterton was
one, and our friend Mr. Posner at B&H for another.

Hopefully we are a more civilized place at this point.

At the risk of agreeing with Mark ( :)...........  I think he's right.  
the one problem is that when dealers do discuss things there's always 
someone on the list who thinks the dealer's opinions are slanted 
towards what they have to sell which is why some don't offer opinion in 
a public forum.  I'm certainly not the official LUG Historian but I 
think I've seen only Kit discuss things Leica and I enjoyed hearing her
