I just bought 4 rolls of Kodachrome 64 as well.  I remember the 25 the best 
film ever made in my humble opinion.  Plus, now you have to send it to Kansas 
city for processing, however, there is something about the anticipation of 
getting the developed slides in the mail.  Then seeing them is another story 

Hopefully, the price will come down a bit and I can buy a 35mm f2 or even 
better 1.4 in the near future to complete my outfit.

i use an R4s since 1984 with 35 curtagon, 60 macro elmarit and 180 apo-telyt. i 
concur that outfit will outlive me and maybe will get higher value from now on. 
i do not think to sell it in any way and, strange enough, my wife agree... we 
alll love Leica (she use a leica mini beside a nikon coolpix)

btw: i have 9 kodachrome 64 asa in the freezer. its time to give it a try!

I recently had DAG CLA my de-panda'ed silver chrome Leicaflex SL.  For
sensory feedback it's easily my favorite camera.  I have more SL bodies
than I need now but I'd have a hard time parting with any of them.  As long
as there's film and either DAG or Sherry Krauter I'll be using a Leica
reflex, R10 or no.
