has some stuff. Jean is a good person to talk to. Also try ImagePoint, on
St. Catherine street east of Crescent. Really nice people there, some of
whom are regular Leica shooters themselves. Greg is right, Simon's used
prices aren't that competitive. It's worth visiting if you like getting
attitude while you window shop - it's one-liner heaven there.

north from St. Catherine street. There is a large-scale exhibit of
photographs currently on display outside called "Les Faiseurs de Paix /
Protecting Peace" featuring the work of seven Canadian photojournalists and
documenting the work of peacekeepers and aid workers in hotspots around the
globe. Two of the photogs used Leicas (to keep this O/T!), including me. My
pics are the ones from Bolivia. Don't hesitate to drop me a line while
you're here (email off-list for contact info). Montreal is a great city!
