And now "The rest of the story": "The Leica Watch ZM 1 Gold Limited Edition is a “tribute to the rich Leica heritage of pioneering craftsmanship,”

P.S. Just getting in on the teasing. You know I love my Leica kit.


And you make great pictures using it!

Why can't they be both?

Nothing wrong with a bit of bling.

I love these threads-

Leica gets so much shit- I also get shit when I walk into my local camera store with my Leica gear- They know me now so I get even more shit from them but they are always give me crap and ask if I actually use my Leica gear- HAHA

Then they tell me how much they would love XYZ from Leica-

Love this forum as well- Its by far been the most rewarding forum experience I have had -

I have to agree with you Rusty. The Leica Forums here on FM are fantastic. Generally very welcoming and tolerant of different views, and criticisms. I think this comes from their confidence and enthusiasm for the Leica system. No insecure brand war issues here. Full of happy, knowledgeable, and supportive, people that provide a good vibe. A valuable plus to the Leica experience for me.

There wouldn't be any Leica jewelry if it hadn't been for this little darling:

A red dot M4-2 AND an MP style film advance lever?

Was that some sort of special edition model?

p.s. keep it away from Sherry Krauter. She claims it is not a real Leica. And also because parts may go missing.

Apparently it had been to another well known tech that left a few parts out, too.

To be fair… what I heard was that it was CLA’d by whoever, then by a tech we have heard about, then DAG fixed the leftovers. So who knows if the first CLA resulted in the missing parts (non crucial stuff like the second shutter curtain), or the second..

I haven’t touched the M4 since this one came back from Don. The “secondary set” of the 28 Color Skopar, 35 Nokton and either the 50 Nokton or the Color Skopar are used far more than the lenses in the M4 bag. No problem with finder white out. Between the solid advance lever and the grip, it feels just right in my hand. It’s the best piece of jewelry I own.

I think it is time we answer this question once and for all. So, I placed my leica M11, and a few lenses in a small pile of gemstones I had on my desk for identification and sorting.

You tell me, do they fit together?

$1250? That’s a whole lotta film or an M3-ish.
