Subject: [Leica] My M8.2 arrived!

Thank you Luis, Doug, Tina, Didier and Jeff, for your encouraging 
thoughts. One goal I have is to begin posting photos on The Lug 
Gallery.  Mehrdad, the M8.2 is the black paint model.  Just beautiful!

A Leica is a bit like a boat. Getting a new one is exciting and a happy 
day. Selling a Leica is a both sad and happy.  If I were rich, I would 
probably still have every single camera I ever owned. However, I still 
have my first Leica, the M3 I bought while in college. It does not look 
like much but it still works as smoothly as silk--especially after a CLA 
by Sherry Krauter.  I don't ever expect to sell the M3.

I have made some test shots with the M8.2 but nothing yet to show 
anyone.   Still learning my way through the menus and the manual.

I am still most appreciative to all those on the LUg who purchased my R 
gear and made it possible to buy the M8.2 without wrecking my retirement 
budget!  I am very lucky that my wife, Carol, supports my passion for 
photography and for Leicas.

Warm regards to all.  ...Ken
