5/3     I'm in the market for a functional Leica IIIc Luftwaffe rangefinder
        camera. I'm wondering where I should go to find it? eBay is full of
        fake knockoffs from Russia.
        \_ Also, which screw mount lenses are better? Summicron? Elmar? Planar?

5/28    Reading camera posts got me curious about rangefinder cameras. In an
        era of DSLR, full automation, and instant digital imaging, why would
        anyone want to use a rangefinder camera? Why are Voitglander and
        Leica even making modern rangefinders when DSLRs are clearly superior
        in terms of lens selection and features?                -DSLR guy
        \_ Rangefinders are still more quiet, have less vibration, and are

        I've been eyeing on this Leica M3 with box, tag, certificate, case.
        If you look at picture 9 of 12, you'll see a receipt from March 16,
        1957 for the amount of $1317.80. How much dollar is that in
        Deutsche Mark back in 1957, and how much is it now when you consider
        inflation? I'm trying to figure it out but historical prices are

5/18    While my nemesis was putting on the green I had a chance to show
        off my newly acquired Leica M6 and Leitz 5cm Summicron, in almost
        mint condition. It turns out he's a rangefinder enthusiast himself,
        except that it's behind the glass because the fucker doesn't want to
        put a single scratch on his collection. That's why he only brings his
        D-Lux 4 "the son of M8" and occassionalyl 1Ds mk 3. Later on

2/5     I'm a yuppie with a huge disposable income and I want to buy a high
        quality LIGHT WEIGHT camera that I can carry in my pocket and
        go hike in exotic places. I've ruled out Canon G10 and other
        Japanese brands. Do you guys own a Leica M8 Rangefinder and
        what do you think about it?
        \_ Panasonic LX3.  Leica is mostly for showing off to other people,

1/7     Anyone have a rangefinder camera? Like it?
           \_ here you go:
           \_ What is the deal with geeks and cameras, anyway?
        \_ There was a time when people were interested in rangefinder
           camera because without the pentaprism, it's lighter than SLR....

10/7    I want to buy a Leica Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH. I'm also
        ambiguously gay and I'm ethnically Indian but I prefer to
        hang out with well educated white people.
        \_ (Responding to the troll.)  f/0.95 Leica?  URL please?

6/21    New Panasonic DSLR camera:
        This one looks to have a great lens. Leica 14-50mm/F2.8-3.5 (28-100
        35mm equivalent). Plus a nice indirect flash mode for indoors.
        Too bad you can't get that lens on another camera. Sony's new DSLR
        looks pretty good too. Hooray for competition.
