Not the entire family, but most of them...

1) M2 with collapsible Summicron and VC-II meter.
My battered, but beloved M2. The L.A. smog ate the vulcanite shortly after I got it, but the camera feels smooth as silk.

2) M4 with Summicron DR and VC-II meter.
The camera that will have to be pried from my cold, dead hands. I have another M4 that I stripped and is awaiting a coat of black paint.

3) M6ttl with 2/35 Summicron-M (4th) and SBOOI finder.
My first Leica. Sherry Krauter knows this camera intimately. It started out as a .85, but I had her convert it to a .72, because I couldn't see the 35mm framelines. Then it was knocked out of my hand and she had to replace a cracked bodyshell. Most recently Sherry added the MP/M7 flare fix.

4) M7 with 1.4/35 Summilux ASPH and Leicavit.
The hood is a Contax GG-2, to which I added a vent. For the past two or three years this camera has been my metered workhorse. It is from a very early batch and Sherry Krauter added the M7/MP flare fix to the finder.
