Default Our dogs are not spoiled

is what Linda keeps telling me.



Of course, the dogs being spoiled is entirely her fault, I have nothing to do with it.

PS: This is with the 25mm pancake that so many folks over at DPR say is not a very good lens.

The thing is, I can take sharper images with my SHG lenses. But my "P&S" is actually one of the two L1s with that pancake and I'm happy with the results for a "P&S" type family shot.

If he ever reincarnates as a hot human female chick, all of us males are in deep, deep trouble. I don't even want to be around when that happens.

The L-1 is truly the modern version of the Leica IIIf, my first camera. And as you know, Leica sold a version with their brand on it - the Digilux 3. (The L-1, with the all-black body, is a better looking camera though. I spend way more time looking through my cameras than at them but this camera brings a grin to my face. But I suppose you need to like rangefinders to appreciate it.)




It's larger than the Leica rangefinders but surprisingly, not very heavy - it has a magnesium body like the E1/E3/E5. If the ZD pancake had an aperture dial this rig would be perfect for a "P&S" type street camera.

The bounce-flash feature of the built-in flash is surprisingly useful.



I used it for the photo in my OP in this thread.

Enjoy your dogs while you have them. I lost one of mine to lymphoma cancer this morning. She was a tough old dog, made it past 16 years before the cancer won.

Steven, I'm very conscious of their short life span, and hug them every day.

I'm really sorry for your loss. That's happened to us (different illness) and I have a very deep understanding of how you feel. Maybe don't make the mistake I made last time, of not being ready for that pain for over 2 years, before I was willing to get another dog. The ones we got after that, would have healed me a lot sooner.
