Other than Leica, Canon, or Nikon ...

  • Digital: Olympus, Pentax
  • Film: Voigtländer (6x6), Hasselblad (6x6), Rollei 35, Minox 35, Minox 8x11, Polaroid (SX-70, Spectra, Land 350), Nikon, Olympus

That's how it stands at present. With the Leica SL now in my hands and the very complete R lens kit I have to use with it, all the other digital (Nikon, Olympus, Pentax) and about half the film cameras are being put up for sale. 

 

The other film cameras will be kept for sentimental and/or uniqueness reasons.

I use the R9 for any serious shooting and either a Sony Cybershot or smartphone for off-the-cuff snapshot stuff.

 

Particularly in view of my hefty investment in the R system, I was so disappointed when Leica abruptly chose to discontinue the line, just like many others around the world I've no doubt.

 

Meanwhile, a Nikon D800E gathers dust on a shelf, an outlay I would have gladly sent Leica's way if only they had opted for an integral digital solution for the R.

LEICA M6

LEICA M8

LEICA ME

28MM f2.8 ELMARIT

40MM f2 ROKKOR

50MM f2.4 SUMMARIT

90MM f2.8 ELMARIT

 

NIKON DSLR D800/D600/D300  ASSORTED PRO LENSES, ZOOM & PRIME

 

I HAVE BEEN USING LEICA FOR MANY YEARS, BACK TO 1950.  MOSTLY PHOTOJOURNALISTIC WORK.  I HAVE FOUND THAT THE LEICA M IS AN EXCELLENT CHOICE FOR PICTURE STORY WORK.  ALSO HAVE USED THE "R" SERIES, LENSES FINE BUT CAMERA WORKABILITY NOT SUITED FOR MY WORK AT THE TIME.  NIKON HAS ITS PLACE!

Leica MP, Monochrom, X-vario, T, C in use.  Leica iiif, O replica, and M3 in my historic collection, although I don't use film anymore.  (Old Rolleicord VB and Horseman VR also in collection)

When I was on a cruise, discovered that my M9 had the sensor corrosion problem (since repaired and sold).  Bought a Sony a6000 and M lens adapter to finish the cruise.  Found the Sony had some advantages in size, weight, focus options, zoom range (with Hasselblad 18-200 mm), and other bells and whistles, so I kept it for special occasions and backup.

Last december i got my first digital Leica, a M262. The camera i hoped for since i didn't like the idea of having a rangefinder camera with liveview, EVF and video.

I am a Leica M6 user since 1989 and owned several lenses. I now have a 24/3.8, 35/2, 50/2 and a 90/2.8.

 

I also own a Canon 6D DSLR, mainly for long lens use (70-200, 300mm)
