Not that it's camera/format/gear based, but a number of folks here 
participate over at John Brownlow's (AKA Johnny Deadman) Streetphoto forum, 
which I believe originally spun off from the LUG, but that was before my 

Gear occasionally does come up, but usually in evaluation of it's 
suitability for that type of shooting. Harping on the matter is considered 
to be missing the point.

I notice that a number of LUGgers cross-post to the Olympus list
(*raise hand*). I also know Tina and others sometimes cross post to
other Leica lists (LEG?!) and some people even cross post to HUG
(Hassy), RUG (Rollei) etc.

But are there no other 35mm camera list the LUGgers regularly cross
post to? I know a number of you own Nikon, Canon, even a Pentax or

Does this come about partially because the OM shares some
philosophical DNA with the Leica - Maitani said that he wanted the
OM-1 to be Leica-like.

Inquiring mind and all that...
