That's quite a setup. What did you think of the lens?

Ha, I remember Wall St. Camera.

R lenses bought at the demise of the R system (2009), Leitaxed and used on a D700. Latest and greatest Nikkors didn't seem so "greatest" after that. A few months with an M6 about 2 years ago, and it was downhill from there...landed upon an MM a year ago.

Mine was the M8, but it was on a whim and I didn't really check the camera properly before purchase (it was used) so it ended up being an unpleasant introduction to Leica for me. I actually wrote about it recently here: http://www.digipixelpop.com/?p=1455
