The Leica M-Series
Posted by Christi Ginger on 27 September 2007.
The New Yorker recently ran a really interesting article on the history of the Leica, specifically their famous M-series. The beautiful (and very pricey) Leica has an impressive list of devotees and still claims quite the following.
I have never abandoned the Leica, anything different that I have tried has always brought me back to it. I am not saying this is the case for others. But as far as I am concerned it is the camera. It literally constitutes the optical extension of my eye. --Cartier-Bresson
There are also a few Leica aficionados right here in the JPG community.
JPGer Gaëtan Rossier has some great shots taken with a Leica M7.
