I bought his book today!
So here we are, almost 10 years after the book was published. Thanks to the links here in the Rangefinder Forum I was able to learn about the book and placed my order this morning. I got an email from Robert a short time ago, thanking me for the order and confirming my membership in the Historical Nikon Society.
I took delivery of a Mint Nikon S3 2000 last Saturday. I got it via Japan Camera Hunter and could not be happier. The camera exceeds my expectations and I will be putting my D810 and my F6 on the shelf while I do some RF shooting.
