London with the M9


Recommended Posts

Just back to US from 10 days in London. Unfortunately, could not get tickets for Olympics, but never mind. Walked about 80 miles in the city with the M9. Visited the Leica store at Mayfair and RB Lewis, the latter where the manager lamented the tony Leica store, and suggested Leica was "mad" coming out with a $7k plus lens and other almost too expensive gear. Says the M10 will be $10k! Anyway, around London, had several people comment that I was carrying an "old fashioned" (film) camera and saw no one else with a Leica. I like my dinosaur M9 nonetheless.

Well if you could have been at Tower Bridge and the Southbank yesterday you'd have seen me with an antique M9 and a positively neolithic M6!

 

It's a nice time for street photography around that area - so many cameras no one minds getting caught in the viewfinder of a stranger!
