A picture in BW during a mountain hike : two friends on a glacier, June 1975 (18 years old...

 ) , brand new Zorki4K with Helios 50mm f2, yellow filter. iirc Ilford PAN F 50 ASA.

The same year , 1 month about before, handled the Leica (IIIc ?) of the father of a friend, but I seem that didn't take any picture (was at home), but decided that RF was definitely OK.. and soon after proudly bought my Zorky at 15.000 Italian Liras...

You're story is better (and likely more unique!) than mine.

 

I have come to the M10 from a Leica Q so a bit of a learning curve ahead.

Nov 22nd 2009.  M9 with Summicron 90 Apo  Subject was one of the last roses in my garden.  Totally out of focus.  Only weeks later I learned that the OOF was not user error but the RF of my brand new M9 was way off.  Camera came back from a seemingly interminable journey to the factory with a spot on RF.   Spring was already in the air at the time I could start enjoying my first rangefinder.
