Yes, a 21mm on a MD-2 (without rangefinder) works well, if you don't take close-up pictures wide open.
The best use with this body is, of course, the Visoflex.

If was great personally handing the camera to you in NYC.
I won't trust UPS or USPS with it.
I am glad you are making full use of it =)

Yes indeed. Let me mention how amazing it was that Mark was able to hand deliver the camera less than 24 hours after I paid for it. What an amazing bit of luck that he was passing through NYC.

I love RFF!

Curious, do you find the M3 different in feel as a result of the M4P chassis, which of course has steel gears rather than brass, which some (not me personally) feel gives a rougher feel with film advance?

Well perhaps I should save more of this discussion for a thread dedicated to the camera itself. I do however feel that this camera is a definite Frankenstein. It has a similar feel to the M6 as far as film advance. I'm not sure I have used a straight M3 enough to know all of it's feels and such.

That's a nice combo Chris. What's your experience with the VC meter?

What's with all these Zeiss lenses on Leica's? It's evil!

I'm dying for a black paint M7. Maybe before the a la carte goes to $10k I can save up enough cash to grab one. I'm getting jealous of all the brass around here.

Hey all, I'm new to the forum, I do not own a Leica yet so unfortunately I can't post an image, but I just want to say all your cameras look beautiful and this thread is the thread of my dreams!

Ahh murakami. So weird and so oddly good.

The m6's on the other hand are not as weird, but still good.
