Leica Mirrorless

As the owner of Leica binoculars which I intend to be buried with I thought this looked interesting http://bit.ly/1iljOTX.

Hmmm. Not tempting, 'cause have not the money…;-( BTW here’s a video for the real 45 minutes where someone polishes it. I wonder where they make the real thing, German hours are way too expensive, apart from if they can find someone there to do it in the first place. So, China, Viet Nam, Malaysia…?

Effective ad, I’m still watching. Better than the ubiquitous and frenetic “Look at me” approach.

From what I’ve read it’s still made in Germany. Impressive given the affordable (by Leica standards) price.

I have a pair of Leica-compatible rangefinder film cameras made by Voigtlander (actually manufactured by Cosima, in Japan), and way too many lenses for Leica M-mount. I am still waiting for the day when either the Leica M9 becomes affordable (due to the relentless pressure of eBay and newer models coming out) or Cosima decides to make a full-frame M-mount digital body.

Actually, anybody to win that particular race at a price-point that isn’t Leica-dumb will get my money. The Voigtlanders were ~$600 each for the body, so that’s my benchmark.

But film processing and turn-around time are a real joy-kill. My Nikon D3 gets more love these days, because instant gratification, never mind it’s like taking pictures with a paving stone compared with the scalpel-like R3 and R4 rangefinders.

I found a workable ‘inbetween solution’ by adding a sturdy Novoflex adapterring to a Nex 7 so I could use old Zeiss C/Y lenses. It is not the same experience of a manual film camera, but it comes close and the quality is stunning.
