An examination and celebration of the Leica

posted by Jason Kottke   Sep 19, 2007

An examination and celebration of the Leica by Anthony Lane in this week’s New Yorker.

Asked how he thought of the Leica, Cartier-Bresson said that it felt like “a big warm kiss, like a shot from a revolver, and like the psychoanalyst’s couch.” At this point, five thousand dollars begins to look like a bargain.

Exploring the Leica web site after reading the article, I was intrigued to learn of Leica’s á la carte program for customizing an MP or M7. Tempted… There’s also a limited edition titanium M7 that retailed for ~10,000 euros.
