Leica M Camera Interest?

7 months 1 week ago #736142 by D30gaijin
Just curious since I am new here.  My primary interest is in Leica digital M cameras (I own an M Type 262) but also love M and LTM film cameras (I own a M6, IIIa, IIIc, and If red dial).  I also own too many Leica lenses to count, several dating back to the 1930's that I still use to this day.  I also like Meyer Optik Gorlitz lenses.  Of those I own both new and old versions.

Thank you for looking/reading.

I would love to move to their system eventually. Awesome cameras for travel.

My rangefinders are Voightlander Bessa L and R, L39 mount, and Bessa R3M and Zeiss Ikon SW, LM mount, all bought new, with Leica and Voightlander lenses. I do have Leica R lenses from 21 to 560mm, about half converted to Nikon F. Still have my Leicaflex SL and SL2, but don't use them often. One of my favorite setups is the Zeiss Ikon SW on a Visoflex and 200 F/4.0 Telyt. Also have a Visoflex bellows for macro work. There doesn't seem to be much interest on this forum for film or Leica, but I sure enjoy them.
