As most of you here know, I've gone through a lot of different cameras over the years. Still have most of them. Some I have yet to get around to using (not that I haven't tried). But I've really tapered off this year, mainly because I'm running out of brands to discover.
But one brand that I've danced around quite a bit is Leica. Oh sure, I'd always say I aspired to owning one, and was sincere about it. It's just that there were all these other alternatives to investigate first. But two years ago I got my first actual Leica, an R3 SLR, which I quickly replaced with an R7 (meter system on the R3 not worth repairing). Then early this year it was the CL rangefinder. I really like it, but it has it's limitations. So today I put an order in for an M4-P. It has the expanded frame-line viewfinder (28, 35, 50, 75, 90, and 135mm), and the easy load film system. Plus, it can take a winder/grip drive!
It is the culmination of a long endeavor.
