Don, Interesting to hear these M's going to RIT.  About time Leica  
made a smart move.  Apple has been making it easy for students to use  
their product for a long time.  I had an epiphany at RIT and  
converted to Leica.  Got a couple lllc's and never looked back.  I  
had been using 35mm and a 6x7 SLRs and wasn't getting results that  
thrilled me.  Usable pix but no thrill.  I happened to sign out a  
Nikonos to use while taking a scuba class and got pictures that  
really pleased me.  I can appreciate a well crafted photo but I get a  
real thrill out of a grab shot.  My feeling is "Zone focus, keep  
moving for angles and keep shooting".  On the other hand, I never  
"made it" as a photographer. But I keep telling myself that had more  
to do with marketing than anything else.

Ok, Ok it's another digression. Sorry.
