Thanks, Moose.  I use Monochromes because I think differently when I know
I'm shooting B&W.  I frame and expose for B&W instead of color.  It may
sound weird, but I can definitely tell the difference.  I love B&W and
would like to use Monochrome for a whole trip sometime.  Maybe when I
retire.

The Leica SL seems to be pretty waterproof.  It went under with the
Monochrome and is still working fine.

I can recommend an Aga as a new stove ;-)
