    Leica Showcase Leica 50mm f/1.5 Summarit

    I picked up a crusty Summarit with 1950s serial number for a fair price last week. The front element is pretty scratched up and has two small pits in it. Looks like somebody dragged it along a gravel pathway. The aperture ring was binding quite a bit and really didn't like being disassembled...

    Leica Value of M-series Lenses

    Hello. I am new to the forum. After many years of inactivity with photography and my eyesight slowly deteriorating, I have decided to sell off my Leica-M gear. Can someone give advice on where I can go to determine fair prices for really clean used lenses (20 of them) and three used bodies...

    Leica Nippon Kogaku LTM 35mm f2.5 vs Voigtlander 35mm f2.5?

    So, I saw a thread about the Nippon Kogaku 35mm f2.5 (I think it was Brian's) and got a bad case of GAS. Went to the bay to look for one and it turns out the the Japanese sellers are asking $500 to $750 for them. That's out of the question, not only for me but apparently for everyone else as...

    Leica SL 24-90mm: Big, Heavy, Versatile, and Superb.

    Ran across a "couldn't pass-up" deal on a used SL 24-90mm, mbp.com. Delivered to the Fedex-Kinkos, picked it up yesterday. Yes, it's big and heavy. But it's very manageable on the SL. One lens, auto-focus, 24mm to 90mm. With this and the 21mm f3.4 SEM, this could take care of 99.9% of my...

    Leica Older Leica M Film Cameras

    As my search for a Leica M film camera continues, here's a question for those with plenty of experience with older bodies: Just how old can one go and still retain a decent level of reliability? In my case, I'm looking at M6's and M5's. One can get a lot more bang for the buck with an M5...
