I find focusing  the main problem when I use Leica glass on my 300D. The
stop down metering I can live with, but the dim viewfinder is a bit of

Regarding lenses. So far I have the 18-55 that came with the camera
(rather soft wide open), 28mm f2.8, 50mm f1.8 (both very good) and a
70-300 zoom (not the best in the world). The two primes are in a
different league to the zooms - I'll have to dip my toes into the world
of 'L' glass sometime :-) One thing about using an SLR again is that it
reminds me what I like so much about using a rangefinder.

Part of the decision about future lens purchases is how much trouble the
stop-down metering will be with the Leica lenses. Some people say it is
no problem, others 
say it is a major PITA, so I will just have to find out for myself.
