Now, I feel a bit of a fraud posting this here, because this is an LTM ("Barnack") shot not an M, but there doesn't seem to be a Barnack forum around here so... This is a bit of Autumn loveliness taken with my Leica II (D in the US). It is a 1929 "Standard", upgraded to II spec in 1934. I have had it about five years not and have added to the brassing and patina through quite a bit of use. It wears a 5cm Nickel Elmar most of the time, and lives on 400CN. I took this shot a couple of weeks ago: <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/lightmancer/6477824173/" title="Barnack Nature by RangefinderGeneral, on Flickr"> View attachment 45593 "612" height="914" alt="Barnack Nature"></a> ...and here is the tool itself... <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/lightmancer/2553526647/" title="IID 5cm Nickel Elmar by RangefinderGeneral, on Flickr"> View attachment 45594 "500" height="320" alt="IID 5cm Nickel Elmar"></a> Great fun, and proof that oldies are still goodies.
