    Just got one.The thing that strikes me is how wonderfully simple it is.

    Hi Brian, I'm intrigued.
    How do you focus your new camera? I can't see any rangefinder windows, so is it manual, or some novel form of auto focus? I bet there's a lovely leather smell from the case, and strap!

    I just can't understand why anyone would buy a new Leica other than as a Veblen toy. I've owned various Leica film cameras and the M3, in particular, was a first class photo taking tool. The digital cameras though, seem to offer no advantages over the mirrorless cameras from other manufacturers. If Leica were to produce a digital copy of the M3, using the same shell and viewfinder system, I could even be willing to haul out the plastic...

    Looks beautiful, but is it better than your iPhone?

    Malcolm it has extremely good auto focus. But the manual mode is quite spectacular. No fly by wire here.. The lens is truly amazing, mind you it is a Summilux.

    Is it better than my iPhone11? No texts are very slow and it won't turn my central heating on. ;)

    And thankfully nobody has to try and explain it for you.


    The leather case? Far better than Luigis finest.
