Perhaps they aren't the most practical cameras but for $500 you can get a nice 1930s vintage Leica screw mount that is only a few model generations away from this prototype. Not only can you appreciate how hard some of the early 35mm photographers had to work to get a successful shot (with ISO 18 film for example) but the images have a different sort of quality. Seems as least as valid as all the posers shooting plastic Holgas . Operating - even fondling - the old Leicas is quite pleasurable as long as you do it alone, in a dimly lit room.... Cackling at the poor Occupy protestors helps heighten the experience.
