I was driving on the Island (Nassau County) most of my time driving taxi and we'd get these rains causing flash floods; the Checker would get through big puddles just fine. If you have a picture of your old Limo you should post it!

P.S. to stay on topic, not sure what the market is doing today but the MM is still a good buy! And yes to the Heliopan Filter....
David,

Classic style is always hip. That is why the MM will always have a cult following. Some people don't understand that classic=timeless.

R,

Mt favorite lenses for my MM are the 28 Cron and 35/1.8 Nikkor in LTM.

Yes Canon 50 0.95, DAG did a great job converting to M mount focuses very accurately with the rangefinder. I also use a Hexar AF lens converted by MS optical and a 50 'lux. Will need to meet up in city sometime. I live in LI and moving to CT next month

Nik,

A group of 5 New Yorkers is meeting up with Ben from Philly Sunday June 4th. We already have reserved seats on the Megabus. Basically it is a day trip to Philly to go shoot.

PM me if you are interested.

I would be interested in trying your Canon 50 0.95 on my SL via the Leica M-mount. I mount my Noct-Nikkor on the SL, but 0.95 is kinda crazy shallow.
