That's where I am right now. There are too many fantastic MF cameras out there for me to justify spending a whole lot on 35mm.

The only real 35mm system I'm invested in is my Nikon FM, F3 and the glass that meets it.

Maybe one day, if I have enough money to not care about the expense, I'll dip my toe into the Leica M series.

Primarily a display item these days.

After years of procrastination I bought my first Leica, a user IIIc, a few weeks ago at a camera market. Waiting on a 5cm Summar to arrive.

Too many Leicas!

M2, M3, M4 (x2), M4-2, M6, M7, MP (x2).

Trying to get rid of some of them, but seemingly hard to sell these days.

I have owned many bodies and lenses over the years and have managed to hang onto some. Currently I have a M-6 Classic, 24 Elmarit Asph, 35 Summicron, 50 Summilux, 90 Elmarit-M...never a digital body...too expensive...I've a Pentax K-3 for that. All Leitz was purchased by the late 90's.

Went all over the place.

Currently got M4-P and IIIg. Not sure if I need anything else, but I'm sure I'll get something interesting at some point. Not feeling the digital ones now though. (Had several in the past)

Unlike my Leica lenses, the number of bodies is under control: IIIb and M4, both chrome. I think of them as best-of-breed.

I'm missing the third choice, which is that my Leicas seem to own me. Kind of like owning a Jaguar.

Monochrom 246, M240, M3, M4, lllC. I inherited the film Leica's from my father years ago, have had them CLA'd, and use them with great fondness of recalling my father using them.

M2 and M6.
Perhaps a 246 in the future, when used prices will be lower.

M2 + M6, but I use the M6 more and the M2 is there to be pretty and I can't let it go because it was my first Leica and k have an emotional connection with it.

Sorry about your eye sight. An AF DSLR May work better than a RF camera.

Leica M9, purchased early 2010
Leica M7, purchased second half of 2010
Elmarit 28
Summicron 50
Summarit 75 f2.5


I don't use the M7 anywhere near as much as I could, but love it when I do. The M9 gets used a lot, at least once a week, more if I'm going out or have some interesting things to shoot at work.
