A momentary lapse of reason...

A momentary lapse of reason...



I hit the button and here they are...

Now, tell me that I need a 15mm Voigtländer...!

They look beautiful and brand new. It's going to take a long time to wear them out. I have tried that Leitz 5cm viewfinder on my IIIF and find it's lovely to look through but doesn't match what ends up on film very closely. Perhaps better on the completely viewfinderless body?

As others have said...seems reasonable to me. They look completely perfect. I've often toyed with the idea of getting one of these and slapping a 15mm on it. DO IT!

You need an Elmar 5.0cm f/3.5 AND a Voigtländer 15mm... :-)
Just trying to help.

The 3.5cm Summaron looks very nice on one of these ... and a great lens!

For a second I feared you had bought a Leica Reporter.

Nice set, Huub

Hi,

Aversion therapy may cure you; put some film in them and a lens or two in your pocket and go out and take a lot of pictures....

Regards, David

Can't wait to see some of your Netherland rural landscape again, Huub. Taken with these beauties, of course

I had the very same experience. Hope we are not veering OT.

Congratulations on your acquisitions!

Ah, very nice; and now you have to find the rare cases for them to keep them in that condition. Plus a Leica/Leitz Fokos rangefinder to use on either one.

Fabulous! I seek both, and can only hope to find them in as nice condition. You scored a terrific deal to get both at once. Congratulations!

I'm also not enough of a gearhead to know what those are...

But it's great to have two compact bodies, put a different lens and dedicated viewfinder on each !

Great purchase , I am sure you will all be happy together .

Yes, you do need a 15mm Voigtlander. I have one in M mount, and like it very much!

And congratulations, you got two really nice Leicas!

They're beautiful Huub. Congratulations, no lapse of reason at all on these, more a fanciful flight of imagination
