Warning!

Never go into a Leica store! …your wallet will feel lighter afterwards.

Not a good idea really, so partly on a whim I went in not having real idea what I was looking or thinking of buying anything. I find myself looking at the Leica MP (Typ-240), a MA (Typ-127), M6 and M4’s, then part exchanged my Leica M3 with the 50mm Summicron DR lens. I came out with a used very good example M6 and a very cheap, bargain price Summicron 35mm ASPH 6 bit lens. I say cheap because the although in excellent condition, this lens had no original box, caps, case, lens hood or Leica papers and was cheaper than my original 35 Summicron from three years ago. Amazes me how someone can lose these items for a Leica Summicron lens …sacrilege!

I know I said I was going shoot only with a 50mm focal length but I soon regretted not having a 35mm to hand in the camera bag. This thought has come to me a few times while being out with the camera of late and I find myself looking around on the web at lenses. Still, I think 70 – 80% of my work will be with a 50mm lens.

This lovely lady had stopped to talk to my wife. While the women were gassing the sun made a rare appearance this particular morning lighting up her shining puffer coat and her face. With the incoming stormy weather coming in from behind I couldn’t not take the image.

Leica M-P (Typ 240) Summicron-M 35mm ASPH.

I’m taking the M6 with the 35 Summicron out for shoot this Thursday, so as they say ‘watch this space’
