The Leica M4 was introduced by Leitz in 1967 with serial number 1175001 and was in production until around 1975 until serial number 1443170.
The majority was produced in Wetzlar, Germany, but black anodized cameras, produced in Canada, exist. The total production was around 47.000 units of which just around 4.500 have been made in black paint finish, mostly sold to professional photographers.
A few special versions have been made and I will try to show these in future videos.Read more...
A view days ago, Leica launched the remake of the Summilux 1:1.4/35 “Steel Rim”, which originally was produced between 1961 and 1966. The optical construction was used much longer, until 1995, which made this lens one of the longest ever produced. Now there is an official remake of this lens, with a slightly bigger filter thread, but the differences between the old and the new one could be a whole extra article.Read more...

I absolutely love 12 mm (18 mm equivalent in full frame terms) as a focal length for landscape photography.Being nether too close, nor too wide, 12 mm offer a perfect wide angle view without showing too much distortion.Here I would like to review the Fuji X-Mount version of the Zeiss Touit 2.8/12 mm lens.Read more...

The Rolleiflex – a name that makes photographers‘ eyes shine and that generates a strong urge of possession in those who are into medium format photography.
This camera offers an amazing and rare combination of beautiful design and great usability. One example for that are the shutter and aperture dials which complement in shape and position the two lenses at the front of the camera. Another example is the combined focus knob and light meter display on the left side. It just sits perfectly in reach.Read more...
Leica I Model A with Anastigmat lens, 1924 - the very first model of the Leica as presented at the Leipzig Spring Fair in 1925 - only about 150 pieces were produced in this version, of which only a few have survived - one of the most historically significant pieces among the Leica cameras at all.
Leica II Model D with Anastigmat, 1924/1934 – a very rare pre-war conversion from Leica model A into model D – still with the original 5-element Anastigmat lens.
