    It weighs like a tank...

    I believe all those older 35mm camera bodies and lenses were built the old fashioned way... all metal...

    If you were on this side of the Atlantic, you could get my mint Leica M6 with a mint 50mm f/2 Summicron , they are currently listed for sale in eBay. Excellent condition, like new. But I need to let it go. It's a pity that I can't get used to the way its controls work. Aperture ring towards the front of the lens, focusing ring towards the camera body. It takes me hours to set it up to take a picture. In one case, even the dog got bored and fall asleep before I had everything set up.

    I can only wish... and would dearly love to have that Leica!

    I know you would love to have it.



    I had always drooled over Leicas and this example I got is pristine, exactly what I've dreamed for, all my adult life. However, on one hand, it is so difficult for me to get used to it and the way its controls are, and on the other hand it is a significant investment to just have it in the closet and not use it.

    John,

    That's a very beautiful camera... and after all, it is a Leica.

    Yes... too expensive to just set in the gunsafe with no use.

    Yes... the ergonomics and controls are uniquely odd.

    Still, it's tempting beyond words to own one...

    Perhaps it falls into the category of something you've always wanted... finally obtain... and then wonder why you bought it.

    Cliff my friend, that's the exact category this item falls in. I would be really sorry to see it go, but this is a lot of money in that nice-looking German piece of jewelery. I could buy other things which can compliment my existing Nikons kit instead of having a camera I'll just be looking at.

    Have you guys noticed a trend lately, in Nikon's lenses? Most of the lenses coming out are either the DX type of the crippled G type. What's wrong with Nikon lately?

    My current inventory:

    8x10 Deardorff view camera
    11x14 Deardorff view camera
    12x20 Lotus view camera...multiple lenses for all 3 cameras
    Mamiya RZ67 with 50, 110 and 180mm lenses
    (2) Rollei SL66 with 40mm Distagon...80mm Planar and 150mm Sonnar
    Canon F-1 with various lenses
    Canon Powershot G9...My only digital. Use it to post gun photos..........

    As you can see, all but the last one are film cameras and the BW film for the 12x20 runs about $12 per sheet. The bellows on the Lotus is large enough to hold probably 20-25 Colts and 10 boxes of ammo. When I go shoot that camera, I ain't kiddin....TW
