Leica R8

Leica M5 and R8 – In defence of the Forgotten Divas – by Markus Maurer

My name is Markus. I come from a small town in the south of Germany and from my early twenties, I have been seriously into photography. I shoot mostly people, mostly nudes, and mostly on film. Obviously, this post isn’t about my photography. I live, unfortunately, relatively close to the university town of Tübingen, where after my studies I spent the next 8 years as a happy resident. I say unfortunately because this town is home to one of the finest camera shops I have ever seen: Foto Walter. Now this shop got me back into photography more times than I can count, and it also has the best used gear collection from a Leica enthusiast’s point of view that I know.
