Hey man, no Hetchins in my lot unfortunately. Hopefully one day. As for one for yourself, I know of a 54cm one but that's it. When I find one in your size I'll be sure to let you know. They show up from time to time and they always fetch top dollar. Esp the crazy curly ones...

Top dollar & curly ones... = i have to let go my current one, the ciocc frame, some of my old vinyl collections, no Bianchi and no Leica M8 :( too steep!
[madonna's material world ringing in my head! urgh...]

i saw a higgins on prolly's blog... not bad if done properly but Hetchins is the shit!

any pic for the 54 one? hehe...

Yeah man, you can't deny Hetchins superbe raddness over most others makers. You'll def have to give up something BIG if you really want to take the plunge. Do you have an M8 or were you planing on getting one? No pics on the 54cm but I might be able to get some. I'd like to see it for myself...

The M8 is the plan... got a feel of it just the other day...man... it's perfect but sky high price!
should've dash out from the shop as fast as i can with it hehe... you've got qood cameras too... i'm on a ricoh gx100 and a nikon... small shit compared to yours... but i do like the ricoh.

Dude, The M8 is indeed rad but it's SUCH A RIP! I mean, all Leicas are but that one especially. The sensor size and res suuuucks compared to other high end cameras out there. While I would MUCH prefer to use a digital rangefinder over an AF SLR, the M8 just isn't worth it. I ended up going with the Canon 5D instead. Which is what, $2G's less than the M8? That and the 5D's sensor is a full chip! I ended up spending the $2G's I saved on two Canon L lenses(35/1.4 & 24/1.4). I say unless you can get an M8 for super cheap or free, hehe, don't waste your money on one...
