    i really enjoyed using the 35-70 f4 a few years ago . it's obviously doing well on your SL
  2. at the same time, i ordered a FATTY D strap in black with red stitching from https://sailorstrap.ecwid.com/#!/FD-Black/p/62224677/category=18060064 for the SL, because of the larger diameter woven cord. it too is comfortable, well stitched, and the communications with the company were quick and easy. $55 including mailing charges from warzaw, poland was quick and reasonable. the only drawback is that the strap comes without buckles etc for the SL, so i'll need to borrow them from an old strap.
  3. i'm sorry to read the sad news about umberto eco. his books remain a reference for me - how much i still need to learn and discover.
  4. i'm a bit sad to see the dogs just sitting there on a display stand, with a short leash keeping their heads up, but thank you for the short photo documentary. greetings from hamburg rick
  5. don't ask me how i stumbled across this link to straps from www.deadcameras.com , but i thought their XL STRAP would be perfect for the SL. they're handmade in portugal; communications by email were quick and easy, and the strap, with its extra-wide pad, is well-designed and very comfortable. it comes with optional mounting rings , so the strap can be moved to different camera types. i'll post photos later.
  6. a great corner of london! thanks for the memories.
  7. 1. i wanted to carry just one camera, instead of choosing between or carrying two (MM and A7R) 2. a 4:1 ratio between R and M lenses greetings from hamburg rick
  8. thanks, all. i learned something new about the early days.
  9. hello carlos i'm certainly no expert, but comparing your III with mine from 1939, i'm concerned that they don't look like products from the same manufacturer? i'll watch this thread to see what advice the experts will offer you. good luck. rick PS. i think your question should be moved from the S forum to the rangefinder / barnack section where it will get more attention
