Watching tracking with FedEx with some enthusiasm, after a hefty outlay on Tuesday...

 

Wonder what it might be?

A calculator?
A notepad?
A sandwich?

Am I getting warmer?

wattsy is much closer than michaelwj  :P

Athough, the calculator, notepad, and sandwich could be included at some stage in the future.

Second hint: the contents relate to this little corner of the Leica forum...

I'll up the ante by offering one of my hand made A5 leather covered notebooks, post paid, to the first person who can make an accurate identification.

Congratulaations to 105012!

I saw that box and got anxious, because I thougth I'd knew... but you were faster - obviously! :)

Nice move too, pjay! :)

And to not forget the most important aspect: Enjoy the travelers' set! Do you plan on making trips with this equipment? 

 

Sincerely,

Cranberry

Hi Cranberry,
The gear is new old stock, so although the camera and lens will see use, the rest will be safely stored.

The lens has been calibrated for digital M, so will probably spend some time on my M10. I've already got three 50s, Summicron, APO and a 1988 f.1 Noctilux, but the Summilux will be a new experience.

Darkroom gear is next ;>)

Oh wow! That's something a bit special then, huh? :)

I just imagined someone walking with that briefcase and having on that long trenchcoat... haha love it.

 

wow that's some well regarded lenses you have there! Enjoy everything in good health!

Oh yeah - your own darkroom! A dream for many! Keep us posted please? And I'd personally enjoy fotografs of the traveller's set, too :)

 

Sincerely,

Cranberry
