Appreciating the Challenges of Photography in 1932 (5 Frames with a Leica II & Elmar 5cm f/3.5 Lens) – By Reed George

Leica rangefinder cameras have defined small format photography from its beginning and persist to the current day. Maybe you know about the digital rangefinders, including the M11 and the M10 Monochrom, which shoot only black and white but with oh so much capability? Or maybe you’re familiar with the Leica film rangefinders that are still made today, and are even expanding, with the recent announcement of a reissued M6 that is closely based on the original M camera design of the M3 introduced way back in 1954 (Morgan, p.90).
