Yes, another one! I have been at home with an inflamed tendon for the last week so I have used the time to do some scanning and posting...hop I'm not outliving my welcome! Leica reflex cameras have been coming and going out of my life for a lot of years. The one I actually owned was a R3, a camera that served me well until I traded it on a R4 and that was a mistake. Not that the R4 wasn't nice, the R4,5,6 and 7 cameras are just fabulous to use, but the early R4's suffered from terminal electronic problems, and my R4 was one. Decided to try the earlier cameras and started with an SL, a camera that I still have and I love. The SL2 is a slight improvement with more sensitive metering etc. The SL2 has garnered a lot of collector interest, being the last of the all-mechanical Leicas, until the R6 anyway. I still use both cameras on a regular basis, and of course the lenses are a very big part of the attraction. While the cameras, particularly the Sl, can be obtained for a reasonable cost, the lenses are still expensive, but not Leica rangefinder ridiculous fortunately. I have the standard 50mm Summicron, 90mm Elmarit, 135mm Elmarit, 180mm Elmar, 35mm Elmarit and a 250mm Telyt. One day I will add the superb 28mm Elmarit. For those not familiar with Leica nomenclature, the names tell you the maximum aperture ie, Summicron is F2, Elmarit 2.8, Summilux 1.4, anything slower than 2.8 is an Elmar. I had the Leica with me when I was using the 500ELM, but have included some older pics as well. First the camera.
