Saw a few RF's during Japan trip
Just a brief report on RF's I saw during recent Japan trip. I did not go to the camera-shop district in Tokyo.
We obviously visited a number of temples, shrines and castles. Zero rangefinders seen there. In fact, I only spied 2 film SLR's total (Pentax ME Super and Minolta 7000).
However, one Leica IIIc was seen at the Sony building in the Ginza district. Toyota had an incredible advertisement on the side of the building and everyone was gawking.
Then, the next day I saw 3 Leicas within 5 minutes at the Tsukiji market: an M8, an M7 and an M4. At that same market, I also saw a Fuji 645zi and a Bronica RF645.
So out of 6 rangefinders seen in 8 days, 5 were seen within a total span of 10 minutes at one fish market (albeit a world-famous one).
