Hey gang--

So my question of the morning is, does anyone on the LUG own an Epson
RD-1 yet? I have one client who has bought one from a dealer in Hong
Kong, and he's enjoying the camera immensely (the only camera he took on
a recent trip, and he's got other M-cameras), I believe with his 35 f/2.
I've been haranguing Epson about this, and they are being pretty darn
cagey about whether (or not) they'll release this to the U.S. I just
talked with a sales rep who expressed surprise (!!!) that lots of Leica
M-system users would be interested. I said, "Are you kidding?" He seemed
excited to find that out
(odd?) and said he'd get back to me ASAP. I had to do a virtual
double-take on that one. 

So can anyone show and tell? Or have we alread revealed all we care to
reveal, or discuss, on this subject?
