PTP,

Agreed. Leica is a luxury item.

Use to be just a Nikon SLR film shooter. Only bought into used Leica when I turned 50.

Sold all my Leicas and bought back into Minolta SRTs that I started out with. Now I have the dream system that I wanted when I was 17. LOL
Put all that $$$ back in the bank.

Now I am 60 and ready to dust all this stuff off in my retirement. Mucho FUN up ahead!

If Leica is listening: where is the new SL? When are they going to make me my SLM (Monochrom)?

If they are not listening they will launch an a la carte SLMOT for the young hipsters to better appreciate the days when photographers had muscles.

(I think you have one?)

D,

You are correct.

I say that with every baby Linhof sold comes a free gym membership.

I can say the same for the Leica SL. The criticism of the 50 Lux being massive and heavy are true. The thing that goes unsaid is the rendering is wonderful. I love this lens. Does not get better than this. Know that I own a Noct-Nikkor and a 50 Lux-R "E60" which are also outstanding.

These three lenses on a CL become 75's or in the case of the Noct-Nikkor and 87/1.2. The sweet spot is perfection on a CL.

BTW my right arm is deformed and is about 1 inch longer than my left. It is also much more muscular. I'm a skinny guy, but my arms are disproportionally big. Also I have an ugly neck that is thick like a football player. Looks odd on a skinny guy.

Dan,

Low blow. I own a SL2-MOT. LOL.

Do you have a 250 exposure reel that can handle 33 feet of film?

I bought this 250 bulk loader from KEH for no money. If you had that Minolta you would need my Topcon loader. I think I paid something like $30.00.

Cal,

I have the Minolta 250 Exposure Bulk Loader I bought from KEH for no money. And about ten SRM 250 exposure cartridges with cases. And I'm looking for a 33 foot reel. Shouldn't be too hard to find. 35mm firepower just like 70mm LOL

Seems like the slacker way to shoot Eastman XX Movie Film.

Dan,

Crazy is good I say.

I can't wait to quit my boring day job. Your darkroom fills me with envey. Call me antisocial, but lock me in a darkroom with a stockpile of paper and chemicals.

Know that I'm a bit of a hoarder like you. I have a darkroom in my public storage. I have those Kodak 3 1/2 gallon hard rubber tanks like you too for dip and dunk.

Not that I'm your "stalker" but I follow your threads and 5222 definately is the slacker's way.

I saw a SS 33 footer on EBAY not too long ago. The seller suggested using a 5 gallon bucket for a dipping tank.

Cal

This exact same poll results would come if this question was posed to Numismatists.

You could balance yourself out by having the SLMOT on one side and the battery pack on the other...an osteopath would surely agree.

A nephew of mine was/is 'something in the city'. Inevitably he had a Porsche. He went to the osteopath.
'Do you have a Porsche? asks the osteopath.
'Yes' says my nephew proudly.
'I won't treat your back until you get rid of that damn thing' came the reply.

D,

My friend John calls my cameras "Monsters." On a M-body I like using Tom Abramson Rapidgrips and Rapidwiders. I don't mind the weight, and in fact they are like carrying a weapon in plain sight: part dagger, part blackjack, and part brass knuckles. If I had to defend myself I know what to do.

For me sniper rifles are heavy for a reason, and a heavy camera is a steady camera.

Also I guess I kinda look a bit like a monster with my deformities. My tailor says a one inch difference in arm length is a lot.

Cal
