joining the stable: Leica M5.

As you may have noticed, i’ve become quite enamored with photography these days.  Here is my latest purchase, a like-new, mint condition Leica M5.  To me, this is THE coolest Leica M camera ever made (along with the M Monochrome….dream on!)….i’d been wanting one for a while—-and now I have a shiny, perfect example of one purchased as NM/new old stock!  Still working on the first roll of B&W film.

It’s a strange feeling taking photos and not previewing them digitally on the screen instantly; BUT it makes for a really great partner to the wonderful M8.1 I have been using these days.  Digital and film; the best of both worlds! I am very happy with this combination.

I also have a Chiyoda Kogoku Super Rokkor 50mm F1.8 LTM lens on order, which will be then going onto the camera.  For now, I have the CV 35mm F1.4 mounted…..temporarily.

Let creativity flow!

M5 brochure.

No, not that M5—-the 1971-1975 Leica M5.  Some of my favourite excerpts from an original M5 brochure.  In my opinion, the most beautiful camera ever made by Leica!
