              It was funny alright but even funnier is this groups knowledge of Leicas. Leicas are RANGEFINDERS not SLR's one does not focus through the taking lens. He is having exposure troubles not focus as the viewfinder on a Leica is always the same brightness as the outside light.

                        Yikes..It's a pandemic! Now, of course, if we picked up a guitar I'm sure he'd have a lot to say about us. "...the hole side of the body always faces out!"

                            Whoops - not ALL Leicas are rangefinders (the S-system) - that one was though.
                            If there are no stupid questions, then what kind of questions do stupid people ask? Do they get smart just in time to ask questions?
