My MP and M3 are gone
Nov 2, 2012

I don't come here too often these days. And seems I'm shooting even less. I've been procrastinating for the last 2 or 3 years about selling my MP and/or my M3. Now, I can't blame it on my wife, as she was always the one to say "Don't sell your Leicas!" whenever I brought it up. But frankly, it pained me to see these beauiful cameras just sit around, so I just sold both to a nice young gentleman who I feel is going to feed them well. He has had an M3 and M4 in the past. And recently he sold off his M9, as he just didn't care for the workflow required. (don't blast me on that, since I've never had one of my own)

Anyway, I still have a these in my Leica kit: lux 50, cron 35 ASPH, and a IIIfRD body with 50/2 Summitar (the one with the 10 circular blades). Someday, I would like to get another digital body that I could use my lux 50 lens with, as it has always been my favorite.

Here is the last shot I took with the MP (and lux 50). "Dan", a friend from work, at the bike shop I wrench at.
