I'm looking for original case of Leica 250 Reporter.
Maybe somebody know resources (except eBay) what I should monitoring for the subject?
And how it do in the best way?
As background, some years ago Leica produced a collectable M9 Titan, all titanium including the 35mm 'lux. Part of the kit that came with it was a very nice holster and also three sizes of finger loops. These finger loops attached directly to the side of the M9. The combination worked superbly.
Now, to get the same functionality with an M10 you need to buy a hand grip ($us415) plus a finger loop ($us135 each). $us650 just to get the finger loop function when it was designed into the M9 years ago, without having to fit a new bottom on the camera. See https://www.kenrockwell.com/leica/m9/titanium.htm to see the attached finger loop. The current offering is clunky and unnecessarily complex.
Leica where are you? When can we see that M9 Titan finger loop on an M10 or M11?
btw the holster with the M9 Titan looked and worked well, except for no top strap. It meant that if one bent over too far the camera fell out. I notice that newer holsters have such a strap, though it slows down a quick draw. The guy with the Titan will shoot first.
Meanwhile, does any third party make finger loops that attach direct to the M10? The Wotancraft wrist strap is close, but not good enough.
