I was in New York City and decided to wander around Tudor City and take some pictures. Overall it was a pleasant experience and I was happy with the results.

Of course at first it was difficult to get used to the lack of an exposure meter and only manual focus, but after a while I got used to it. It was a cloudy day and the exposure didn’t vary much so I only rarely had to change the settings.

I’m still not keen on having to trim the film leader, nor am I happy that the rangefinder and viewfinder are separate and the rangefinder window in particular is rather “squinty”. Apart from that I have no complaints. It’s small and with the collapsible Serenar lens fits easily in a pocket. It’s clearly a very well made camera.

I also have a Leica M2 that I’ve never used. Can’t wait to give it a try.
