There is a camera brand that many photographers aspire to own. Leica is an old company that pride themselves on the highest of highest quality. From the camera build quality to the lenses that they design and the images that follow from these cameras.
Last week I was able to acquire a Leica Type 240 for a couple of days. It was coupled with the 50mm Summilux (That’s Leica’s terminology for f1.4). Now its not like any old camera and it does take getting used to, this is due to them being a rangefinder. Which mean you look through a viewfinder that is not connected to the lens. To focus you have to align two little squares that will align your image together inside the squares and presto that should be the sharpest part of the image.
Now don’t get me wrong, this is a camera and lens that is built to the highest standard and you can feel it in the build and it does produce good quality photos, but I preferred my little Nikon D600 and my Voigtlander 40mm.
The following images were taken on a afternoon stroll though my neighbourhood.
