Getting my first Leica was an unlucky experience (Marks on brand new M8 normal?). I fell in love with the feel of the camera however, and now have a new M8 along with a Leitz 50mm lens from the late 50s–60s in great condition acquired from International Camera in downtown Oakland. I went cycling around town to test the lens, and am happy to publish my first picture made with a rangefinder!
