Hello. I read your article "Why Leica" A very good question IMO. Something I have thought about myself more than once, or each time I buy another Leica lens. Ha Ha. 

I learned from your article that Leica created the first AF system and sold that tech to Minolta who in turn created the first AF camera the Minolta 7000 AF while decided to stick with MF only cameras. Truly interesting. I guess history can tell us if that was a good decision or not.

Personally:

1. Sometimes I see a unique look some of my Leica glass can produce in the right circumstances. I like this look very much and am thrilled when others notice this look too and bring it to my attention. 

2. In today's word of some pretty fantastical camera tech, the Rangefinder provides a very satisfying and now unique experience ...all over again. To my knowledge Leica is the only company still producing RF cameras? 

3. In a world suffering from dragging around back-breaking DSLR cameras, lenses and associated gear, making your way with small/compact Leica gear is a refreshing pleasure. The unique high quality IQ is just icing on the cake.

Hi mate and thanks for your time. Yes Leica invented the first AF module and AT THAT TIME rangefinder was still preferable. Now it's only a matter of extreme personal taste. Today Leica is the only one with a digital rangefinder (I had a Fuji Xpro2 and no... it's not the same thing obviously).

In the last three years I'va swapped my Canon equipment for Sony, then Nikon and Fuji and Sony again and now Nikon. Leica has been with me since 15 years ago. So many Leica cameras, so many cron and lux lenses (and one hector) and so much japanese gear. I can tell you that the only thing that now is comparable is my Nikon Z6 with the S-Line lenses. It's sharpen and ha a bokeh so similar to my 35 FLE that I'm going crazy.

Everything is a matter of choice. For my personal project I use both and I love to shoot with both cameras but around my neck and my heart Leica has a privileged place.

Forgive my english and thanks again.

      Hello everybody,
      I need some advice regarding repairing/CLA of an M6.
      The camera seems to have shutter capping (It might be partially my fault since I took out the camera at -7 degrees Celsius a whole day, however, after that, I shoot a roll in a normal temperature environment -my house- and everything  was fine, all the images were fine)
      So... these are my questions:
      1. Do I sent the camera to Leica Camera without prior notice? I mean, do I ship it with DHL and that's it?
      I'm asking this because on their service page they do not specify all the types of Leicas they are repairing. I'm assuming M6 is one of them but it's better to play it safe.
      2. I want my problem to be fixed and also I want a full CLA (I've noticed some gunk on the winding gears and the low exposure times are not quite accurate). Should I specify the CLA part in the attached document or the CLA of a camera comes by default with the 
      repairing process?
      3. Please don't laugh on this one but the camera will be sent to: Leica Camera AG, Am Leitz-Park 5, Wetzlar, Germany? I'm asking that just to be sure that I'm sending the camera to the right address.
      I realize the questions are a little bit odd but I never sent a camera for a CLA (I usually shoot with two EOS3 cameras-never had a problem).
      I bought recently this Leica from Ebay and I want to make it "as new" before I start shooting with it intensively.
      Thanks in advance for the answers
      Cheers
      L.

      Verkaufe mein LEICA VARIO-ELMAR-R 1:3.5/35-70 E60.
      Das Objektiv ist in einem √§u√üerst gepflegtem Zustand. Die Linsen haben minimale Staubeinschl√ľsse sind aber sonst frei von Kratzern, Fungus und haben kein √Ėl auf den Blendenlamellen. Die Mechanik des Objektives ist sehr geschmeidig. Die Blende rastet sauber ein. Schaut euch die Bilder an. Die wei√üen Spots sind Staubpartikel und kommen vom Blitzen. In diesem Zustand ist das Objektiv kaum noch zu bekommen!
      An meinen analogen R-Leicas liefert es erstklassige Ergebnisse.
      Geliefert wird mit Front- und R√ľckdeckel.
      Preis f√ľr das Objektiv inkl. vers. DHL-Versand bis 500 EUR innerhalb Deutschlands.
      Zahlung per √úberweisung, Paypal for friends oder bar bei Abholung in M√ľnchen (abz√ľglich 5 EUR).
      Besichtigung und Test unter Wahrung der Coronaregeln in M√ľnchen gern m√∂glich.
      Ich schlie√üe jede Haftung f√ľr Sachm√§ngel aus. Die Haftung auf Schadenersatz wegen K√∂rperverletzungen sowie bei grober Fahrl√§ssigkeit oder Vorsatz bleibt unber√ľhrt.
      F√ľr R√ľckfragen stehe ich gern zur Verf√ľgung.
