Is it the Starbucks or the Leica Joe? Be strong, our Rs will battle on just as their Ms do!

I must admit though, that Lugi case looks sweet.

very sweet - fortunately i have never used a case and doubt i ever will.

starbucks tastes burnt to me - just my humble opinion.

i like leicas much better than starbucks.
but i really like the r too. i guess there's no accounting for taste, eh?
i had hoped to get an r2 but maybe another r (for backup of course), then an r3.

here's my contribution. please forgive the hilariously low resolution. this is taken with my only digital camera, the "vivitar capture 35" a hybrid digital/35mm thing that i bought on a whim. i had to buy it just to support the idea of hybrid cameras in general.

can anyone identify the rangefinder?

rover, i saw that ad. i assume the 400 is american which translates to about 540 canadian. that's still a good price as new they go for about 880 canadian.
if i only had a spare 540...

Crikey, I looked at that ad too and began wishing I had an R2 to go with my CL. And last night I *almost* bid on a Canonet QL 1.7.

It's dangerous hanging out around here

I tell ya Joe, once you get past it and get to liking Starbucks, it too is an addiction

gene, i am a coffee freak!
i have given up many things for health reasons but told my doc that if he ever put coffee on the list i would sign up at the undertakers.
i love coffee, even tim's and costco's kirkland columbian but can't get used to starbucks.
of course if it were the last cup on earth...

joe
btw - that r2 would go great with your cl - just think 2 cameras, 2 bodies - no waiting!!!

Joe, we must be soul brothers. I could give up many things, but NOT coffee. I like Tim Horton's too -- I'm not too fussy as long as the coffee's reasonably good

Yeah, an R2... You guys are bad influences ...

A break while walking down the streets of Barcelona. So this is no Starbucks.

I'll guess Minolta AL, looks pretty close to mine from what I can discern with my beady little eyes.

I must be missing out on one of life's greater pleasures, but I just don't like coffee. I like the smell of the ground beans in the grocery though.

Back when we were dating, my wife took me to visit her old Finn grandmother a few times, and she automatically put out coffee and stale bread for dunking. My wife doesn't care for coffee either, but we gamely drank up without protest. That anyone didn't like coffee would have been inconceivable to the old gal!

Well there's another coffee addict here However, that pint looks tempting enough, if it only was Murphy instead of Guiness...

BTW Francisco, that I know there's at least one Starbuck's in BCN too, in Pelayo street, very close to both Casanova and Jordi Bas foto, that's what I knot it's there, hehe...

Starbucks in Barna City! Ooops! Forgot about globalization...

Sorry, gotta go get a Guinness too... At least I have the glasses at home. My wife (who cannot warm up to the brew) got me four vintage looking glasses a year ago, and they're already seasoned contenders!

No cameras were harmed in the production of this shot.

Except, of course, the camera in the pot.

Joe, Stu, lol!!

Stu, that keyboard folds up into a neat little package that is scarcely any larger than the Palm. I stuff the pair of them into my camera bag and often use them for doing some writing when I hit Starbucks. I'm using older gear -- Palm IIIc and Palm folding keyboard. Got the folding keyboard brand new, still in shrinkwrap, on eBay for $10. It doesn't work with any of the new Palm devices and dealers are just dumping them to clear inventory. I was the only bidder ...

We do enjoy our retro gear around here, don't we?

Gene

Gene... you've got class enough to even use old cybernetic gear!

Can you surf the web with that setup?

No surfing with this old gear ... BUT ... using AvantGo software I can sync with the Internet to get certain news sites like Wired News downloaded into the Palm to read offline. Very handy actually. It's like loading up a fresh newspaper every morning with only the channels I want to read.

I'm sure that the latest gear does surfing and is wireless as well.

I *do* like your pen, Francisco! When I'm not using a keyboard, I use a Shaeffer fountain pen ...

There was a time when I got into fountain pens (as a kid, I was forced to write with them, believe it or not) and I gathered a very small collection of users. The one in the photo is a Parker Sonnet (a gift from my wife), I also have a Sheaffer in gold, a Lamy Safari, a Parker 71, a Waterman Phineas Fogg and a handy Parker 45 (which is in my pocket all the time).

Silver pens really look cool when photographed!
