Fresh coffee, new mug

Sent the design on Thursday, got this mug on Monday. Still to be seen if coffee tastes better.

I predict the coffee will have a unique glow.

Coffee will taste much better, but only people who have drunk from the same cup will understand.

It looks like that coffee mug has a pretty large aperture, so it should be able to hold enough coffee for those mornings where you are forced to use it in very low light.

3.75 inches high, huh. A 90mm coffee mug! How about a 35mm espresso cup? Make the cup with straight sides and your coffee mug would have a matching bidi holder.

I also like how it's wide open in this picture. And remember: don't stop it down too much when drinking, you might find yourselves diffraction-limited ;-)

Is that a focusing tab on the side of the mug?!

I'm sure this mug will give your coffee some bokeh, but wonder about the red lettering. Won't it be too distracting?

Also, how quiet is it? How about loading it? Is that a special edition mug?

Now if you can get some cooperation between Leica and Starbucks so that all their coffee shops sell the mugs (Starbucks doesn't seem to have any mugs for less than $7.95 U.S.) and pay you maybe 25 cents for every one sold you'll be the richest dude in Dehli! Then you can start marketing "The Official Mukul Dube Leica Razor". It never gets dull because it doesn't have any blade (...and nothing works better than beard hair for gently wearing through the black paint on the edges of your Leica!)

I have the same mug but taped up the logo. Now when I drink coffee with that mug, I'm invisible.

In three days or so I should have another mug, same size and colours, but with "Leica" in somewhat smaller letters and no stripes at top and bottom. Watch the Less Than $100 ads. If a member can sell a Victorinox knife with "Leica" screen printed on it, I'd be a mug if I didn't try to sell mugs.

You chaps will force me out of RFF.

Is there any way to take back a thread? I mean, wipe out all traces and convince oneself and the world that it never existed?

To paraphrase: "This is the mug you must bear!"

Now, Mukul, the IMPORTANT questions: Will these mugs be available in a digital version? Are you going to be marketing Cafenol? Brewed or instant or both? How about developing reels sized to fit in the mugs? Nikor sized mugs?

As it happens, Shac, I have a design ready for a version which will have red letters on a black ground, the whole of course being on a white base mug. Trouble is, the process is dye sublimation and the entirely manual transfer of the image can lead to slight but visible inaccuracy. In the mug in the picture, the right edge is 2mm higher than the left edge. Not a great deal, but certain to be noticed by sharp eyes.

You can always turn the problem into a feature by declaring the inaccuracy evidence for the fact that it is made by hand.

(Nice mug otherwise! I don't think too many people have said it so far.)

Will it be perpetually upgradable ... if so will they wait until you upgrade it at extreme cost before changing their minds and bring out a newer better version?

It was specifically designed to be compatible in all directions: that is, it can hold both screw mount and M lenses, and every lens automatically brings up the correct plate of biscuits.

I got the same mug, but I taped over the "LEICA" lettering so I can drink my joe stealthily and not be detected. The coffee tastes better this way and those in the know notice me for it. No. Just dreaming. I do not have this mug and I would never tape over it. Mine is actually an FSU copy of this mug. Coffee tastes pretty good, but the mug occasionally leaks. I think it needs a CLA.
