I am a working news photographer, and a newbie RF'er. I just bought a Zeiss Contax lla in great shape and have a ZI in my sights down the line. I know what Mike's day job entails; when you're in the news business it's non-stop.
I stumbled on his blog through google, and his Contax pages took a big chunk out of finding my way around the camera. So, I went on to check out his ZI blog...kudos to him for taking the time to do that for us after a day at the office!
BTW Mike, you could be a news photographer; it's just the same as being a street shooter at the end of the day.
