Friends, All the recent discussions about lenses have been meaningful and informative and brought back a few fond memories. As I remember, the LUG was full of flavorful and healthy exchanges concerning Leica lenses, cameras, accessories, and the odd OT stuffs like Tilley hats, single malt whiskeys, etc. Digital imaging seem to have pushed the film lenses aside as more discussion was on digital camera performances megapixels,and image storage, manipulation and stuffs in that direction. Most people who buy digital cameras don't even know, or ask or probably even care what lenses or lemons they got with their shiny new toy. Film users were a tad more knowlegeable or at least we were asked to make a choice between some prime optic or those do it all zooms when we bought a camera body. I hope the M8 (or some competitor of it) brings back new life into old lenses! Happy snaps. Dan K.
