Superlative lens. Quite possibly the sharpest lens I own and a perfect landscape/travel focal length. When I'm using my non-Leica the normal zoom starts at a 24mm equivalent focal length and a large % of the images I capture with it are shot at 24mm.

24mm f3.8 Elmar on my M262 this past weekend..

Well, in the old days I bought a new M3 in Germany in 1959. In the 90s I bought a new M6. Not so much these days since the advent of digital, but that's about to change.


Coming this Friday, a new M (262) and 50mm Summarit. Yipee!

I just purchased my first new Leica camera ever. It just so happened it was the last Leica M7 blk body that B&H had in stock. Bonus....batteries were included :-)

I sold a nice guitar in June, and with a pocket full of cash, almost bought an MP, but was able to resist.
Does that count for anything? I didn't think so.
