I find myself using my lighter equipment more and more but have yet to make a leap into the M system. I love my little Hexar Silver and the optics seem very good for the chores I put it to and my Minilux has been satisfactory as a pocket rig, too. I live in the northwest, deep woods country of Wisconsin and literally know no one with Leica M gear and have a 3 hour trip to even get to a metro area. I use a Fuji 645 folder and have enjoyed it over the years along with Bronica RF645 system. Before making the big decision to liquidate (at recently deflated values) part or all of my MF and 35mm SLR systems, I would like the chance to work in the darkroom with a representative few negatives that display the attributes of the better Leica offerings. I was hoping someone might have some "Culls" that were technically proper but not important or artistic images that I could have some hands-on experience with to solidify my decision. The few M series I've personally handled were very alluring and natural feeling for me and I already have a comfort level with RF operation, but need a "nudge" to validate the big decision. Contact off-list to arrange SASE or whatever details might be involved. Thanks very much!
