Sorry Luggers
Stephen should be Steven - no coffee yet this morning. My apologies to  
Mr. Lee
wherever he may be.

Hi Nathan,
I approached Stephen Lee about FOM II and introduced Alastair to him.
Alastair made a presentation about it to Stephen and then nothing  
I wrote to Stephen pointing out that the photographs in the foyer of  
the Solms
office did not emphasize the image quality that Leica lenses were  
capable of producing.
(They were in fact out of focus grainy swirls of sh*t). Stephen did  
find the time to
write back to me that it was Leica policy to allow creative vision to  
the photographers
they worked with. But there was never any response to Alastair's  
Very strange in my opinion.
Keep those Alicante pictures coming by the way.
