"Cartonload" I guess, the last order was for 480 rolls. I don't bulk roll, though - so I actually had to buy a small freezer when the UPS man arrived :D Still beats buying the semi-expired film that...

Indeed! I'll buy you a beer (or a nice bottle of Chablis!) next time you're in Scandinavia. I've spent too much money getting a "cheaper" version of what I really wanted. And images had nothing to do...

I'm going to be honest here, and this is only one humble MP owners opinion.

There are tangible differences (the finder being one of them), and there are intangible ones. To me, the MP is as much...

I found the D-I-Y thread, and to be honest - I'm gonna leave it to the pros:p (if it's a problem).

The thing is: I have a Leica MP, but the size of the finder on the Ikon is just, just, I mean. It...

Greece, London, Venice and Rome? I would take one camera I knew and trusted, and some film.
