Well, hell yeah! I just got 2 50mm LTM lenses back from Focal Point so I have been playing with those. Right now I've been using a IIf BD and uncoated 50/3.5 Elmar. And of course for protection, always wear your hood! Funny story, I turned in a DVD of 800 images from a recent wedding to get proofs. I was carrying the IIf with me. "You shoot weddings with that?" was the question I got. "Of course silly boy, what else would I use?" I photographed a wedding in NY on New Year's Eve using BW film 75% of the time. The clients wanted the "old hollywood" style look. I tell you it was nice to only carry 2 M6's and lenses most of the time. 3 bulky dSLRs can get too much sometimes. I got the film professionally scanned and the images look great! Back to the Leica D2h this weekend though :( Alex, we're thinking of a 2007 Ireland trip. Chris Williams Now "TAMPA!!!"

My question is whether anyone out there is really using/interested in LTM cameras/lenses. They may be old, but that's where the whole 35mm thing started.
