Certainly they use this format in France, it is taking some getting used to

In Ireland - still part of Europe, it's 1,014.5 kg, and in progressive
openminded parts of the UK where it's also Europe, it's that too. In
Switzerland as well, if I remember.

In truth, the fact that India, China and the US all use the full stop at the
decimal point may point to the way to the future, and, in all likelihood,
hoping the future of the decimal mark is going to be the comma is
probably... err... pointless :-)

The weight of my Leica M3 is 947 grammes - that's with strap, f3.5 35mm
Summaron, cap, and spectacles. My Fuji X100S is 475 grammes. Interestingly,
enough the medium format Voigtlander Perkeo with Color Skopar lens and
Synchro-Compur shutter which probably takes better images than either the
Leica or the Fuji weighs 528 grammes. Now if Leica only made a folding
