Fine with me, somebody very dedicated to rangefinders running RFF is probably the best what could happen to a site which has outgrown the hobby propoertions as far as this one.

So a big welcome to our biggest sponsor

This is quite the news

The site was down for a little bit ... I figured that was the news

Does this mean you'll be building your M8 gallery even more Jorge?

Hoping for the future to be as bright as envisioned.

I believe I can understand your decision. Trying to rule the world, no matter which one it is, comes with its set of headaches. Good luck on you both on the new endeavour!

(wow, that only took 34 minutes to post!)

>>I look forward to seing "Nikon" in the Forums list on the left!<<

Nikon will rise again!

This announcement strikes me as a positive thing. Stephen Gandy has done as much as anyone -- probably more -- to provide free, intelligent information for the world of rangefinder camera users.

I assume that Jorge did carefully consider what is best for him and rff. I welcome Stephen and hope everything stays the same and becomes even better.

Hopefully Stephen won't be trying out new colour combos for the interface like Jorge did!

Jorge,
Thank you very much for what you have made here and I think there couldn't be another/better person to have taken over the site!
And something else occurs to me now; does this mean we here at RFF have something of an inside line to Mr K.? I really like the concept of the R4 and have some thoughts about the R5...
Looking forward to seeing more photos from you now, Jorge!
Rob

I'm disappointed. I thought we were all going to get an M8!

It was Stephen's website that got me back into rangefinder photography. It's a natural that he would be more involved with RFF.

Welcome, Stephen!

I was worried for a while because the site was unavailable.

Congrats to Jorge and Stephen! May the RFF community just grow bigger and stronger... Oh...and kudos to the mods too!

My opinion too and remember that the people and the moderators are the heart of this community. As long as the site offers the resources and members keep their friendly attitude this site will be successful.

@Jorge: Good job

Congratulations to both Stephan and Jorge! I have benefited from the vendors provided here over the last two years, I hope there will be no change in advertising policy. Let's hope 2007 works well for all of us!

I believe so as well. I visited CameraQuest off and on for a couple of years before finding RFF and go there even more now. Congrats and thanks to both .. Jorge & Stephen!

We all have seen Jorge through different situations and feel his spirit in the way RFF is designed and managed. I firmly believe he has done the best for RFF, with more than a good chance he is right again.

On the other hand Mr Ghandi, or should we start calling him Stephen, his web site and shop speaks by itself about his great enthusiasm about the rangefinder world.

Therefore this seems to be a marriage of love, which I would do my best to help. Let's look towards the long range, and not at any temporary minor troubles, many young couples may pass through.

Good Luck Jorge, Good Luck Stephen, Good Luck RFF !

oh yay, I was right! Sold!

Interesting to have a camera retailer own the RFF!

Cameraquest is a great site, and shows the Stephen has a true love of rangefinder cameras. If anything, this will boost RFF.

I have to disagree with the sentiments expressed so far because on paper, this is a BAD idea.

No offense to Stephen, he's obviously an enthusiast and a decent guy, but he is also a retailer, and I fear we're about to lose our little oasis of objectivity. A forum is first and foremost a place for the free exchange of ideas, and it's bad enough that any one person should 'own' it, nevermind a person whose objectivity is clouded by being the leading importer for one particular brand of camera. Where, for example, will someone turn now for advice about a Cameraquest deal gone bad?

His site, as valuable a resource as it is, also reads at times like a gushing fanzine for all things Cosina/Voigtlander, and I don't want to see that editorial stamp used here.
