Hi Alastair,
I wish it were so. Canon's latest digital SLR bodies are getting  
better and better and no one (at least on this list) disputes that  
Leica R lenses are among the best. It would be a marriage made in  
photo heaven but I can't see it happening. Too bad. Bests to Helen  
and belated thanks for all your efforts on organizing and  
administering FOM 2.
