Got an amazing deal on a Canadian Leica 35mm Summicron Ver.1 (8-element). Couldn't resist it at $1100, but I probably shouldn't have bought it, even at that price. Time to move around some money!

Leica M3 DS almost mint for a very reasonable $600. Sold my first m3 years ago and "needed" to replace it. Looking forward to my next few rolls with my 50 Summicron rigid.

Rodinal or Adonal for me. Super easy to develop and a nice grainy look in my opinion.

I "need" a reasonably priced, portable darkroom for wet plate photography. There are a few companies out there making them but they are insanely expensive around $1,000+ all said and done.

It is a great meter for sure. I love my little VCII. I would love to pick up another one, but hard to justify the price on a second, even though I know how good it is.

The other thing I just realized is you mentioned a 35mm lens for normal everyday use. I wear glasses, and ended up buying an M6 TTL .58X. I found this to be a dramatic improvement for shooting 35mm...

One more thought from me, and I don't know if many or anyone does this, but I usually carry my VC II meter in my pocket and meter sidewalks or grass or something neutral. Then I just make...

If it were me, I'd take a 35/90 combo, or even 2 bodies with a 35 and a 90 on them respectively. My problem, on almost every trip I take, is that I bring too much gear. The best times I have have...

Been waiting for this camera since the Alpha's got the 5-axis upgrades. Might have to put myself on the pre-order list. Too bad it's not 14-16mp, but all of the other features are pretty solid. ...
