That is a good deal, but I blew my Camera Spending money on the Leica CL.

The Nikon S is a nice camera, BUT has a squinty viewfinder. After using the Nikon S2, S3, and SP it is hard to pick-up the Nikon S with its 0.6x finder for 50mm. The S2 runs about the same money as the S.

After all of that, I would be interested in taking a look.

so brian, did you take a look?

i think you likely need to contact them for more info as the details are nil on the page.

Thanks for the link, Joe(I think)! Have you done any business with these folks? The battery in my G-III is still working so I'm not buying. yet. It finally got relatively cold here(-10c or so) so if I carry the Canonette outside my coat the battery will run down faster. But that would be wrong:D

have not done business with them but intend to check out their store if i ever make it to calgary again.
it's about a 3 hour drive on dry roads.

I had a look; and some very good prices there.

But I "have shot the wad" on the CL with lenses.

I have a Nikon S in EX+, and keep the collapsible Sonnar on it. It does not get nearly as much use as the other Nikon RF's.
