it's not quite as tiny as an MX, but my Nikon FE2 (shown with three lens kit) has the same body size as my M2.

This thread is becoming a "let's shame Leica" discussion.

I post a camera that probably is bigger than a M3...I think.

I finally got one of these cute little Iron Curtain cameras. It's incredibly well made and robust when you have one in your hands. Yes they are a bit odd, but perfectly usable what with the limited speeds. And I find them so attractive with the beautiful engravings and metal parts. I know I'm not the only one.





I think it looks even better with an Exa 1a finder. And it is easier to user and quite brighter too.

it's an iphone with a x0.4 wide angle attachment, it lowers the contrast, makes the edges all crappy, and makes it vignette a little. in short i love it

I have seen things that you humans wouldn't believe.
50mm f1.2 lense shooting wide open at minimum focus distance
200mm f2.8 gathering the light at long distance to ensure subject isolation
And all these pics will be lost in time like tears in the rain.



CZJ Sonnar 200mm f2.8 with electric connectors.

I don't need another camera but I couldn't pass on this for $100. Contax RTS III with Zeiss 50f1.7. Also included was a Contax flash, 28mm and 80-200 Tamron lenses.

Very nice!
I see a few of us are giving attention to the East Germans on the last page or two.
