My very first Leica, and one of the best bargains I’m made, bought it for 75Dkr. ($11.50) and sold it for 1800Dkr. ($270), I could live with finding a few more of those.
There were two reasons that made me sell the camera. The first one is simple, I’m not a fan, the camera is a bit to big and clumsy for a point and shoot, and it didn’t feel right in my hand. The second one is that apparently it breaks very easily, it’s something with the electronics inside, that just goes dead, and since I wasn’t a fan to begin with, I just had a few rolls through it, and then sold it.
I’m either not a fan of the design, it’s a bit boring. The handling of the camera is pretty good though. You set focus – it has auto focus as well, don’t worry – and aperture on two dials, that are right on top of each other, and that is very well done, if you ask me.
Other wish I don’t have that much to say about this camera. It was fun trying it, but I would never put the amount of cash these cameras normally are sold for, it’s simply not worth it.
