Sold Elmarit-M 28 III, it was too wide for me. I have to get very close to people and it was difficult to frame all in. No need to keep M4-P due to this either.

M4-2 needs CLA (advance is tight and shutter is clipping at 1/500).

J-12 dressed for street (f5.6) on M4-2. 8x10 RC paper darkroom print.



J-3 (f1.5) on M3 (ELC). Same old Agfa paper as above.



Two roads from home to our company office are under construction, two roads between those two roads are also under construction. Slow construction.

I returned this M4-2 from Japan about three years ago. As is no service was needed. Took it with me everywhere. Peterborough, Detroit, Ottawa, Montreal, Moscow... Used it as everyday, going to Toronto and for hikes camera. Was skating with it on me on Rideau channel under snowfall and -28C. Went with it up to Georgian Bay in winter. And dropped it on the sidewalk in Toronto. Bodo fixed it, but no CLA was necessary.
Now he and another repair person passed away and M4-2 needs CLA...

Give Jerry Smith a call at Kinderman in Toronto, at least you will get a full service guarantee, from a certified Leica Tech.

M4-2 was given to Mr. Smith. He was amused about condition of M4-2.

Couple of pictures.

This one was exposed before american election.



Taken with M3 ELC and Rigid Cron, which I decided to keep on M3 little bit longer. Kentmere 400 film.

This one bellow was taken beside local Walmart entrance after american election.
I have no clue what Trum pence means. But car was trashy, perhaps after long road trip.



M4-2 with J-12 and RPX 400 film.

Developed yesterday with some extra tricks roll of Fuji 250D cinefilm. Combination of ECN-2 developing kit and HC-110.



It was taken on crazy hot summer morning on my walk to customer site in Toronto.

I've decided to try I-22 on M3 ELC. It is Kazan factory version and I paid 19$. Re-shimming was easy once I know how to

Some low light photography with this set. Film is 400 ISO RPX. Shutter speed is 1/10 and slower.

The place I was working is near Toronto Exhibition. They have buildings, stadium and Go Train station, which is next to Union (Central) station. Evening rush hours I have to wait one hour to get on train...
I went to look around, because it was some people going somewhere. I followed and it was Maple Leafs kids club
event
.







Went back to Go Station, took pictures of police horses, palace entrance nearby:



And took the seat to wait and check what was on-line. Old lady stopped by and asked for directions. I realized she must speak Russian and we continued in Russian. I used Toronto transit app to find where we have to go. We went and ... nothing. All buses stops were gone at this Exhibition Place. I have to walk with her and show her how to get to next available bus station. Barely made it for my train after all...

One of the previous on-site working days we worked very late and at the end I ended up going to the hospital in Toronto to meet my wife and daughter. Nothing serious, more like consultation, but unexpected.

Those are two pictures I took while walking up to the hospital from Union station:

Carols Singers, Ontario. M3 ELC, Nokton 50 1.5 VM.



Silent Night was originally written in Germany.

Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht,
Alles schläft; einsam wacht
Nur das traute hochheilige Paar.
Holder Knabe im lockigen Haar,
Schlaf in himmlischer Ruh!
Schlaf in himmlischer Ruh!

Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht,
Hirten erst kundgemacht
Durch der Engel Halleluja,
Tönt es laut von fern und nah:
Christ, der Retter ist da!
Christ, der Retter ist da!

Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht,
Gottes Sohn, o wie lacht
Lieb' aus deinem göttlichen Mund,
Da uns schlägt die rettende Stund'.
Christ, in deiner Geburt!
Christ, in deiner Geburt!

Father Joseph Mohr.

It was another walk in Toronto after work, about three weeks ago. I spent some time and paper to get these prints more less right.

Thank you, Sug, for contribution to this thread with nice photo!
And thanks to Helen, Stephen and Robert!

M4-2 is back into my hands.



I'm hope, together we will deliver some artistic content here.

Lith print, M4-2 and Summarit-M 35 2.5.

M4-2 is back into my bag.
Weird weather. Snow, freezing rain and double digits plus temperature. It makes me sick.



M4-2 with Jupiter-12.



I like this lens which I received as gift while I was in Moscow. After I re-lubricated it, focus is in on-pair with Leica.



My work, safety boots which I purchased in Moscow around 1998. Took this picture as goodbye.
Bird feeder I build (with those shoes on). We have many birds, but freaking squirrels are now dining where.

Kinderman is LightPro Group now....


February 18th, Saturday 10:55 AM. I'm staying beside not open yet Gallery door where I'm going to see Canadian Street photography prints taken with Leica.

Weekend Brunch. 8x10 print.



M4-2 with Summarit-M 35 2.5. It is most versatile, handy, fast and fun to use kit I ever have for street photography.

I was trying to use M-E for street photography and it was slowing me down. I took M8 and M4-2 with me once and M8 was in the bag all the time. I like M8 for walkaround with family. But M4-2 somehow more suitable for me for candid photogaphy.

Thank you, John.

M4-2 is back for service and no news after two weeks. I re-cleaned cheappo re-shimmed Industar-22 and used new Fotodiox adapter from Amazon Canada to see how it works on M3 ELC:

M3 ELC, fogged Canon 50 1.8. Kentmere 400 in Rodinal, printed in PAL 5x7 Chrome-Bromide paper I received from nice RFF member.

Another Easter Egg Hunt.

Thank you, Greg! No rush. Just have to find right lens for M3.
I think, I'm going back to J-8...

Added half-case for M3 (modified original case).



These are from M4-P and Elmarit-M 28 III (Canada). Don't have both anymore.










Maybe I will add 21mm lens for M3.

Ko.fe, that's a useful calling card you made there. Nice idea.
Love this series of pictures too, of course, and your notes on your gear progression.

I've been thinking. I came to Canada from Russia. I have two ELC film M. One for 35mm, another for 50mm. Why not FSU lenses, if I can't afford ELC lenses...
I already have J-12 which is 5000128 (one of the first made). I received it as the gift in 2016 during my visit to Moscow (post #147 here).
So, for 50mm, here is Industar-25M s/n 505540, which I have for 10.5 USD. I cleaned and re-shimmed it. Focusing is smooth..

M3 ELC, FSU Industar-26m, quick test with Polypan F in Rodinal:
















Comparing to J-12, this one is much more flare resistant.

Going to call next week to check how M4-2 is doing. I'm starting to miss it...
