I find I am now shooting a roll every month or two, rather than shooting
up to 30 rolls in a day. 
BUT - Despite having sold one body and a couple lenses, I still have 2
M6s, three ASPH lenses and a Cosina lens, and I really don't want to

As to changing the name of the group...Why? As Kyle so eloquently put it
earlier, this is a community of people with both common and divergent
interests who have formed real friendships - and not a few enmities -
over the years. Whether or not people are still shooting with Leicas is
pretty much irrelevant, as long as people are shooting, and know what

Just went through 20 rolls with 2 M6's. I at least shoot 3 or 4 rolls
