Surgery on a classic…

The old vulcanite was dying – there was a small chip when I bought it, which I didn’t ming, but then half the back came off in one go… – so it was time to pull out the tools and put the M2 under the knife…

A change in approach

This has been a time coming…

My ‘new’ 1965 Leica M2, here mounted with the tiny Voigtländer 35mm f2.5 Color Skopar. I’ve also picked up a nice Leitz Canada 90mm f2.8 Tele Elmarit, and am looking for deals on a Voigtländer 50mm f1.5 Nokton to complete the set.

There’s a few rolls at the lab now, so we’ll see how she goes…
