Hi again John. I'm an enthusiastic amateur Leica user just like you. You've
been shooting your M's for much longer than I have then. I only got the
addiction a couple of years ago. My kids get a lot of camera time as well! I
don't know why you would condemn your work as garbage without getting a
second and third or more opinion from us here ;-) A number of the active
members here share family photos as part of their photography. I hope that
you post a link and share some photos with the group sometime. I have
certainly learnt a lot here and hope that I keep on doing that.
I do understand that you'd like the delayed cocking as part of the firmware
upgrade. I was just stating my personal experience and respectfully
disagreeing with you.

Yes Geoff, I own an M8, M3, M2 and IIIf red dial. I have old and new
versions of M lenses. I'm not pro. I use to street shoot but now I have a
family and mostly shoot my 2 small children. I have a small gallery on the site. Are my photo's garbage compared to yours? I'm sure they are,
but none the less I have enjoyed Leica M's since 1999 and still would like
delayed shutter cock on an upgrade.  
Thank you.
