Let's face it, BD will never understand the R cameras, or accept them for 
the great machines they are. ;-)  On the down side, my 35/2.8R is sick. 
;-(  The auto diaphram is sticking and not closing down correctly.  I 
guess after 35+ years it is due a trip to the doctor.  Now if I can just 
get it sent out and back before the trip next month...

B.D., your keyboard has been far too prolific to make a search of the 
archives worth my time but you know as well as many others on the list 
know that you've written much more derogatory things about the R cameras 
you haven't used.
