Newly acquired M7 to replace (better looking) m6, with newly found Canon 50mm viewfinder (from one of parent's junkboxes) and newly made DIY strap. Together with newly acquired GR1s on top of newly acquired, lovely Retrospective5 and newly acquired shades.

Almost forgot. Shot taken with newly acquired GRD3. Now GAS is (almost) completly gone...

Always a good idea to point your Leica with wide open lens straight at the sun In full sunlight that could burn through your shutter very fast.

It was stopped down and pointing at a tree. It is not direct sunlight. I know the rules.

My trusty M7 having lunch in San Francisco about a month ago. 50 'Cron, A&A Silk Strap (love it BTW!).



...and here's another day with that M7 chowing down again.

That big speed dial and the old-style M3 lever look to be made for each other!

I'd almost warm up to a TTL camera...

They're just a reminder as to how happy you'll be when yours is back and working.

Yep, another name for it is the XOOIM hood. Any ideas as to what it stands for?

Thanks Wes, yes, despite being worn pretty quick and rambling of some Leica users of how much better the older black paint was than the new black paint , it is my most liked finish.

Here is an older picture of the M8.2 - it was my daily shooter for a year.
This seems, to change now slightly, as at the moment, I use the M9 more (I guess, until the "new" rubs off).

The M8.2 is so pretty, makes me want one. Nice pictures of your babies
