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 Gaƫtan Rossier has some great shots taken with a Leica M7.


And Trevor Brady's recent photo essay, Lost Chairs, was taken with a Leica M6.
