    Let's see those Leicas guys! GSGary's gonna like this one. :lol:

    This practically doesn't count. It's a Leica in name only, but the only one I've had.

    Leica R cameras were like Playboy magazine...people always said that they, "Bought it for the lenses!"

    Wait a second! The title of this thread is “Wetzlar Wednesday” followed by “(Leica)” in parentheses as if Leicas were the only cameras that came out of Wetzlar, Germany – but, they weren't!


    Here is my Leidolf Lordomat, made in Wetzlar …

    However, if you insist on showing only Leicas, here is my Leicaflex which is not currently fitted with a Leica lens because I don't have one at the moment and because I enjoy making Leica-philes gasp in horror. :)

    In case you were wondering, the lens is actually a T-mount 105/2.8 Soligor and isn't bad at all.

    Wait... what? Leicas are "made" as in, by mere mortals? Just like any other camera? I always thought they were delivered on gossamer clouds by angels to a fanfare of trumpets... or at least that's what Leicaphiles seem to want us to believe...

    Mere mortals??? Heck, for a spell there, Leicas were made by Canadians, in Canada-land, at the Midland plant! Some of the mortalest meres in the whole wide world! Or I mean, the merest mortals! Err....I mean....Canadians! http://photo.net/leica-rangefinders-forum/008YGP

    I owned a Leica once........found it in the bottom of a box of free cameras I got some 20 years ago. I used it for about a year, then the shutter quit on me. Sold it to a collector for $300.

    Well, the rules absolutely are flexible with these, so... yeah. That works. The whole MERE MORTALS thing cracks me up. A lot. Nice cameras, guys-I might need to pick up one of those Rs "just for the lens." :lol:

    I'd personally rather have an R so I can throw the lenses on my 7D for detail/short range shots.
