A Leica collection is incomplete without ...

Recommended Posts

A Leica collection is incomplete without an original "Black Paint" body ... so today have ordered a Leicaflex Mk I 'Pie shaped' in beautiful black c/w single cam 50/2. Unlikely it will be with me for at least two weeks and have been unable to steal the pics ... but will post some photos as soon as it arrives. I spent all day wondering whether to make the decision and then at almost 6pm decided to go ahead.

 

I regard the purchase as 'capital expenditure'

Correct, me too tend always to put such expenses in the "assets" column of family's P&L... it makes you feel less guilty...

Of course it only applies to Reflexs, although even they surely can';t go down much more, and surely should appreciate by the meager interest rates of today.

In contrast, my M3 has been a marvellous 'investment', although I doubt I'll ever 'realise' it:)

Congratulations for this woderful camera.

I look forward to see to see pictures...

 

A black paint Leicaflex MK I is rarer than

a black M3. A black Leicaflex MK I with

Motor, is less frequently than MP2...

why you use a viewfinder on a SLR ?

 

The mirror has to be 'locked up' so that the camera body can accommodate the rear of the ultrawide lens mount - otherwise it would hit the mirror.
