Finally joined the Leica M club!

With interchangeable lenses and larger sensors, these two popular camera styles appeal to the professional in all of us.

Finally joined the Leica M club!

Leica M2 and coffee. by Nathan Adams, on Flickr

Always wanted an M series Leica and, thanks to the Xmas money from my parents, I finally got one!

Leica M2 purchased from KEH for a good price. In great condition, too! The VF and patch are bright and the speeds all sound accurate. I suspect the previous owner had it CLA'd before letting it go.

Seen here with an LTM Summaron 35mm I already had, but I also got Voightlander Nokton 50mm/1.5 (also LTM) for it yesterday. Now if the weather will only cooperate so I can go shooting!

Wait for the correct weather - no hurry!

If I ever get an M, it should be the M2. Well done!

Congrats, Nathan! The M2 is a fine first M. I had to choose between that, or an M4-P and went with the latter for no other reason than the viewfinder frame layout. Have fun with it.

You will love the camera.I bought my 1955 LEICA M-3 in 1969 for $154.00 with a 50mm 2.8 ELMAR.It is the last of my cameras that I would ever part with.
