Hi Ken,

What a nice and warm message that I completely share, I agree with all  
what you say. I have a lot of M stuff, I can't use it at once..., even  
there are some lenses that maybe I only use one ir two days at the  
year. Maybe I'll finally decide to sell something to helps to finance  
an M8, but I'm still so much enjoying the film, principally the B&W.  
Nice words for your wife..., probably we all should do the same.

Saludos cordiales
