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.

  Hi folks.

I log in and out of the LUG periodically. Sometimes it seems to be 
more or less OT, sometimes not.

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.
