$Wow, another Friday already. This week FLEW by! Here are some things you may or may not be interested in…some of it all in good fun, as usual.


Uh Oh…Leica scaling back repair service in the UK? It appears so… – If this is true, it sucks.

Another great photographer, Alexander Volkov

Check it out! The Brand New Kindle by Amazon, GREAT price, and better than EVER! Free 3G, built in WiFi, 1/3 inch thin, 8.7oz, battery lasts a month, holds 3500 books, and a new sleek look. $179!

Great article over at DigitalRev – 5 Social Situations where you should NOT take photos!

My article on the Seal tour over at the official Leica Blog is now up! BTW, so is my LE Print Offerings page

Street Photography videos by Chris Weeks. Many of you may have seen these, but if not they are mandatory viewing 🙂

Learn photography at your own pace with the Thorsten Overgaard Online Photo Course, still accepting new students!

Interested in a NIkon D700 kit with an $1100 savings? How about a D700, SB-900 flash, 16-35, 24-70 and 70-200, three of NIkons best lenses..all for $6800? B&H has this special right now.

This is pretty cool..a flamethrower vs a fire extinguisher.

This is something every Leica fan should pick up. The Leica User Forum Book.

Imagining what a Canon EVIL camera may look like..


Used Deals…more goodies this week! B&H still has the “9” condition Leica M7 for $2499. Also, just popped up in the last couple of hours a like brand new 35 Summicron ASPH for $1899, and a Leica 21 Elmarit 2.8 for 1,999, in a “9” condition. They also have a pre-asph 90 Summicron f/2 for $1199, A 28 Elmarit 2.8 pre-asph for $1,299, and what appears to be an older Leica 50 Summicron for $799.
