  1. Yo all.

    Well, being TPF's Leicaweeny means it's my job to link to this week's New Yorker article about my favorite brand and camera.

    Candid Camera: The Cult of Leica


    Be aware though, it's a long article.

    Hey Iron,

    A little off topic but I just purchased this book and I do believe you would enjoy it as well (if you haven't already):

    Leica "Witness to a century" by Alessandro Pasi.

    Its a good mix of Leica history, stories (Robert Capa and Magnum for example), and a tiny bit of technical background.

    btw... are you the TPF Leica cult leader? hehehe lol Thanks for the link.

    -- edit --

    Oh funny... the book I just mentioned is also mentioned in the article...
  3. Well, I'm the self-declared cult leader... but is there any other kind? :lol:

    Yup, I got that book last week. When I organized the European Photobloggers Meet-up in Berlin we had a ton of gifts from a lot of sponsors - including LFI. They sent a lot of books as give-aways, including that one. We were going to raffle off all those prizes, but I kept that one for myself - as my reward for organizing the event ;-)

    Excellent article.

    I only owned one Leica in my lifetime- the M5. I foolishly sold it many, many years ago when I was broke.

    I would later come to realize that usually, being broke is just a temporary thing.
