    terry b's Leica M8 fund

    I know I'm not one of the inner circle around here, and also that not everyone finds my wry wit all that endearing, but I really could use a Leica M8.

    Here's my case - I more or less have the money to go buy one, but I simply cannot bring myself to spend $4795 on the body and then another $3000+ for a lens. Or two.

    So I'm not really begging for money to buy it.Rather, I'd like it if The Lounge would take up a collection separately and discreetly (so as not hurt my pride) and then go and buy the kit and send it to my house, maybe with a more or less anonymous card with something like "We bought you this, now go back to Bikes and Frames and stay there!" written on it.

    I promise to take lots of pictures and write a "ride report."
    You'd be better off with a netbook, they do everything better.

    I'm surprised you've not yet jumped on this mega-trend and started one already.
