I need three things: Leica, film, and light.
The bright sun burns the film, and the silver that cannot be washed away is my most loyal friend.
My original intention for buying the first Leica M was to have a robust tool.
I bought a second Leica M with a body for the second lens.
I bought a third Leica M because I sold a lens.
I bought the Nth Leica M because of “preservation” and I can only explain it this way.
The Leica M2 is not my first Leica, nor is it my last …
Leica released M3 first and then M2? Why is the publishing order not m1, m2, m3? Asking the right question often solves half of the problem. What about the other half of the answer?
Here are my guesses:
The previous generation of the Leica M was the Oscar Barnacle series, and they had not designed a built-in auto-zero counter. So Leica Labs first produced the Leica M1 without the focus and external counter. Then Leica developed the viewfinder focusing structure, and there was the M2. Then the Leica team designed the auto-zero counter and designed a more complicated viewfinder at 0.91 magnification. This is the M3. In the end, M3 was released first, which was so popular that it released M2. The above is purely fictitious, just my guess.
The M2’s viewfinder has three wireframes of 35mm, 50mm, and 90mm, and only one wireframe appears at a time. This is one of the main reasons why many people love m2.contact: firstname.lastname@example.org © 2020 Zhao Zhenguo. All Rights Reserved.
