    I was thinking of you on my return to the forums Rico, Sorry to hear the eyesight has gone so far to limit your use of your two great passions (well 2 of 3 I picture you still playing music) I see you did log in back in may, hope you are still keeping going with the rest of life

    Hi Rico
    Spotted the grey Ricoh XR Rikenon 28mm f3.5 aspherical pancake lens today...remembered that it was a lens we both were curious about. Hope you found a copy. It is for real.

    Hi Rio,
    Hope you get a chance to see this, even if you don't respond. Your advice in the early stages of my Pentax adventures was invaluable. Merely an echo of what many have already said, but it is hard to be on this site without thinking of you (especially as I'm about to embark on deglassing a TC)

    RioRico, I had a severe health issue recently and missed your message below in October while I was hospitalized. Thank you so much for all the great posts and the Franken-lenses along with your kind attitude and fun spirit. If you are able to come back and post a note now and then, it would definitely be WELCOME.

    No sympathy, just to say you've made a difference in a lot of folks lives with the wealth of knowledge you shared with us, I for certain learned a lot from you and I'm sure a lot of other people did too. So just a simple thanks and Godspeed!

    Hi folks - Thanks for thinking of me. No, I'm not doing great, but please, no messages of sympathy. I'm just wearing out. I can't really see well enough to pursue photography anymore, and computer work is hard too. I just can't be active here anymore. It's been fun. Bye.
