Not so much followed but delivered by USPS:
The body came from Ohio
The lens from Toronto (Thanks, Zach!)
The hood from The Head Bartender
The filter from Symerna, GA
The case from Japan
The Abrahamsson Mini-Softie from Vancouver, BC
The strap and rings were from a Nikon F that was sold
The inspiration was a lesson learned about the regret that comes from selling a Leica.

The Millennium, M2, five lenses, a Visoflex III, bellows, adapters plus all the assorted flotsam of Leica bits accumulated over the years help pay for a much needed new deck. New year and as much as I love the Nikons but they’re gone. If I’m going to try and have one camera, it might as well be a good one.

Very nice, Erik, what a lovely set! Several years back I was in a local shop when a young man brought in his grandfathers’ M3. It was from a early run from ‘54 or early ‘55 with the box, warranty card, original price tag and a 2” Taylor-Hobson 2.0. Unfortunately, the camera and lens had been kept in the leather case for decades. Fungal threads were everywhere in the lens and viewfinder. The staff told him to put it on a shelf as a memento. Nice to see your lens is in a very useable condition.

That is the strangest lens shade I've ever seen. Do you have a photo of it opened?

This setup, particularly with the wear and patina reminds me of something from the U.S. Civil War era. It's rather tattered in appearance and I approve!

Thanks! This camera - not the lens or the shade - belonged to Inge Morath, a quite famous photographer, member of Magnum.

Sure!

Leica MP, TTH Cooke Amotal 2" f/2, 400-2TMY/Adox MCC 110.

The lens is from 1948 and is optically descended from the Speed Panchro, a lens that was widely used on movie cameras.

Not mine, I saw this at the Newseum in Washington, DC: Nick Ut's camera & lens he used to shoot the Pulitzer Prize-winning photo of children burned by napalm in Vietnam 1972.







This picture was take by him just moment before the "Napalm Girl" photo:



Four decades later, Ut and the girl reunited in California:

Hello Erik, this camera and lens were in storage for three years. I retrieved them a few weeks ago, and brought them with me. I'll share pics soonest.

I need more M4!

All bodies and lenses have a fresh CLA, all in mint condition. The original black paint arrived today, the Summicron lens yesterday. Can't wait to go shooting with this new combo! Now I have to decide: Gordys wrist strap or Gordys shoulder strap?

What a great performer! Does the 2" refer to the focal length, 2 inch = 50mm? How do you focus sans rangefinder coupling?

That Cooke IS rangefinder coupled! Think they originally came on Reid cameras from the UK? I'm sure Eric can tell you more!

Yes, the Amotal is rangefinder coupled. It was made by TTH for the American "Foton" camera, in 1948. Some of those lenses have recently been remounted for Leica and mirrorless cameras. The optical design is based on the Speed Panchro, also made by TTH, a famous cine lens. Yes, it is a 2" f/2 lens. Certainly very British indeed.

Erik, being a cine lens, does the "T" engraving stand for T-stop? I see markings for f/2.2 and f/22, but I don't see a marking for f/2.
