On Tuesday this week a cardboard box turned up from Leica in London. Within it was a Leica M-A packaged in rather a lot of bubble wrap. Unfortunately this particular M-A wasn’t for me to keep, it is just on loan whilst I cobble together a review.
The review is well under way, though for various reasons, it might not surface for a good few weeks yet… I have actually pretty much come to my final conclusions about the camera, though I shall be keeping them under my hat for the time being.
In the meanwhile I shall be sharing a few photos, this being from the first roll with the Leica M-A, shot with a and 50/2.5 Summarit-M and Portra 400.
Ben, who I mentioned in my last post as being the owner of the M2 I am currently also borrowing, visited near by Malvern with his wife on yesterday. Since we don’t see them too often, I took the opportunity to take an afternoon off and spend the afternoon mooching around the town, gardens and priory. It made for quite a nice afternoon, but also gave me a good opportunity to give the M-A a bit of a run. Here is a selection of the results:
I’ll tell you one thing for free, I’m not used to such modern glass… That Summarit-M is an impressive lens it seems.
Cheers for reading
