Thanks for looking up some of my stuff.  Nope, not a M user, but an R4/8 
user up until three years ago.  Now a Canon Rebel/Leica glass shooter.  So, 
there is Leica content there most of the time, though I do have a few auto 
everything lenses that I use when I think focusing will be an issue.
I like the shot you posted, even with the perspective issue (for some). 
Short of a long cherry picker, (or a view camera)  that's what you get. 
Looks like the low light performance is very good.  Should really expand 
your photography.  I am seriously looking at the D7000 (not 700 - can't 
afford that one) and Laitexing my Leica R glass as an option to get away 
from the Canon idiosyncrasy of metering with R glass.
