its a good price isnt it

with all this journeying in time and getting a feel for the retro and whatnot, I happened upon a Leica R8 on ebay and took a minute to study its look. I think theyre probably the last 35mm SLR film camera to be made, and theyre weather sealed.

For those unfamiliar with them they also came with the digital back turning the film camera into a digital SLR, the Leica Digital Modul R. Which was the only commercial conversion of a 35mm SLR.

and the R8 and Leica that never was, R10. Now those are wheels!

yeah I know its OT, but what the hey...
