Thanks. It's not perfect but other than the leatherette by the frame lever it's in amazing shape. I have a Nikkor HC 50/2 in LTM and a Jupiter 8 which I can use on it once the ltm-m adapter comes in. I also recently purchased an Elmar 50/2.8 that I'm anxiously awaiting delivery.

I haven't handled a Leica M in a long time and that wasn't an M3. Most of my RF experience is with Barnack clones and Canon P's so I was amazed by the brightness of the viewfinder when I opened the package.

I think I'll run a few rolls of film through and then possibly send it out for a CLA just to be on the safe side since the L seal is broken.

The Leica will be so direct and fast, compared to your shoebox..
The Medium Format will blow away 35mm in tonal range but not in immediacy.
Best of Luck, may your exposures be true, your light stunning.

So recently I was looking for a Contax T2, and Sidd (zeshootist) from USA contacted me that he had one to sell, so I bought it and he sent along some rolls of film too! Thank you Sidd!

I have just....scanned through the user manual very briefly (HAHA) but I'm going out to shoot with it today!

Which brings me to the point, would the film be ok to use? This was sent to me in the UK, so I'm not sure if postmen would scan my package through X-rays and all that. It's Kodak 400. Someone told me it was fine.

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL CAMERA.

A dainty Zenit Helios 85mm 1.5 in Nikon F mount to be used on my Nikons as well as my M.

I was thinking about getting a Petzval, but much prefer the results that I have seen from this Zenit lens.

On a completely different note: a Moskva-5 from a fellow RFF'er. Nice camera, was out shooting with it today with a roll of Ilford PanF+ 50. Very happy.

Hi,

This came in the mail just like this and is a little ball about 8cm in dia. or just over 3inches.

Needless to say, it had a lens in it and, I'm glad to say, it doesn't appear to be damaged. And that says a lot for old, second-hand 'Jiffy' bags and 2 ft of sticky tape.



Regard, David

A Super Rokkor Chiyoko 45mm f2.8. It's an earlier version with 5 digit serial number and a small window on the front of the lens provides a secondary display of the chosen f-stop.
It's very compact and balances better than my Topcor-S 2/50. It's size really appeals. Only had time to take a few test shots on my XE2. Sharp centrally from wide open. Edges soft but not distracting. Wonderful swirling bokeh. I'm impressed by its performance on the Fuji but fully expect that it'll look at its best on film.
