Rented an M6

Now I'm smitten! Looking to find ways or things to sell, to speed up my saving for one.

I know I have not said much on the forum, but I have lurked for a while and have appreciated the desire and passion you all have for these terrific cameras.

Hopefully Ill be on talking and posting more once one is in my bag .


Dan

Funny, I find it great being in the city for a little while!

Yeah- I can't eat even two or three...

Renting out a Leica is cruel - kind of like the neighborhood crack dealer offering free tastes.

All is lost.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Thanks for all the support guys and yes I agree, renting one is like giving crack out for a taste test.

so far...$5 in the "saving for leica" pot at home. I am also putting all my loose change in there too.


Eric, I actually had a MINI, but it was a new one and US spec. That pic I had my driver aka GF, driving

Ill post a pic later on tonight of it in all of its emptiness LOL.
