My insatiable GAS has brought me to Leica M3 and M6 with a few lenses.
I had been a longtime Canon user, now using Fujifilm for my digital photography.
I've recently rediscovered film and have tried to get my hands on every iconic film cameras I've heard of growing up but was too poor to acquire, beginning with the Olympus OM-1.
Since then I've bought, tried and sold about 50 film cameras from all the major players in the last century.
From that I've narrowed it down to the cameras I absolutely love and will keep: Canon New F-1, Olympus OM4T, Nikonos V, Fujica ST801, Leica M3 and just in the last 2 weeks, the M6.
Coming from the SLR world, there has been a bit of a learning curve using Leicas, but I see now why that name carries such a mystique.
With SLR's it was always about capturing the moment in the easiest way possible.
With Leicas, I feel like I'm creating art. I guess that's my point - Leicas, especially the M3, make me FEEL.
I'm so glad I found these deals on eBay and CL (so lucky!) and honored to be part of this fraternity.
