the prices fell/are falling so much right now because a lot of people are getting the new 70-200, but i already read reviews that the 80-200 is still almost better (optic wise) and i really don't need the image stabilizer system...
I got this one for less than a used M6 costs, i think that says more to you than if I'd say the €price haha

Leica M2, Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f1.5, Voigtlander Color Skopar 35mm f2.5 PII, shitty Industar-61 50mm f2.8 and a 1938 Leitz Summar 5cm f2 which is on loan for me to see if I like it and want to buy it.

I also have a couple of flashes (Vivitar 283 and a baby little junk thing) and Cactus V4s which I need more practice using, lots of film and a Plustek 7400 film scanner.

One thing i noticed when i was using V4's was that the battery connection in the receivers was real lose and wouldn't make good contact.  If yours is like this i'd recommend taking the whole thing apart and bending the connection out thats attached to the circuit board.  The connection thats closer to the edge of the receiver is just too weak and can break easily.

It's a huge improvement over the old 50 1.4, very fast AF, better contrast wide open and very light. If you plan on upgrading and don't have any old film cameras(the 50 1.4G won't work on any manual focus Nikons), its definitely worth the money, I keep the lens on my camera all the time.

How do you like it Rob?
I want a 35mm rangefinder to carry with me everywhere.

that was also the reason why i bought it.
i really like it 'til now but it's my first day with it so i can't say much about it. it's pretty compact and i love the rf focusing. the screen is much brighter than that of the xa and makes focusing totally easy. but the annoying things are:
1. the lightmeter is always working and you have to put the lenscap on to "turn it off"
2. i already wasted a few frames because of forgetting to take the cap off the lens
3. it uses a 1.35V mercury cell that isn't sold anymore, so you have to get an adaptor which is about half the price i paid for the camera.

now i'm just excited to see the results.

I've always wanted a 35mm rangefinder, but I can't justify spending a lot on 35mm when I can spend the same amount or less for 120 format. (well, considering competition such as leica, bessa, whatnot.)

But I've always wondered how it would be like to shoot a RF anyway... :\
